Based on Original: Circa 1580 N. European, Private Collection, USA

• Overall length: 17.5"

• Blade length: 12"

The pommel and crossguard of this dagger are made using molds taken from the original. They illustrate all of the key features of a parrying dagger. The ring attached to the quillon block, on this example with decorative file work, was to protect the knuckles. This was enhanced by the quillons which curved forward and up from the plane of the blade. This additional protection was needed due to the parrying dagger often being held as far forward as possible and thus a good target for your opponent.
