This cruelly curved Assassins Sica Dagger has a blade of 420 stainless steel; it has a thick, sturdy spine and a sharpened edge terminating in an acute point. Like the claw of a large tiger, this sudden-striking blade both slashes, punctures and hooks with devious and decisive efficiency.
The grip is a full-tang design for maximum durability and it is completed with steel riveted halves of darkly stained wood. The sheath is crafted from stitched leather and has an integrated leather belt loop.
This weapon is the Sica short sword of the ancient Balkans and Rome reimagined as a compact fighting dagger. The crescent-like form of this dagger with a blade sharpened on the inside of the curve, is ideal for striking with the point which practically functions like a pick to capably puncture thick clothing and armor.
