Named for the final battle of the Percy Rebellion of 1402-1408, this style dagger is typical of well-to-do martial wear of the period. The end result of a power feud between the 1st Earl of Northumberland Henry Percy and King Henry IV, the Battle of Bramham Moor was fought in snow on a cold 19th of February. The violent melee ended Percy’s life and the power of the Percy family, although a branch of descendants would rise to prominence later during the Wars of the Roses.
This long dagger has an unpolished stained wood grip and low-sheen brass fittings. The brown leather scabbard features a throat and chape of brass that complement the dagger fittings. The belt hook is a finely detailed roaring lion’s head, befitting a nobleman.
