Based on Original: 15th C., Private Collection, United Kingdom.
Overall length: 14"
Dagger blade: 9"
Many of the classic illustrations of knights in battle show desperate combat with daggers of this type. The dagger we have replicated here is based on an early 15th C. example from a private collection. This dagger style was common from the early medieval period to well into the 16th Century. It has a tapered wheel pommel detailed with a recessed face and centered dome. The down turned guard ends in beaded terminals.
These fighting knives were popular throughout Europe. The stout tapering blade gave good stabbing power and the ability to lever against opponents weapons and body. Many of the depictions of these weapons in conflict show antagonist in close combat where a sturdy well made weapon is essential. The hilt is crafted from steel and a leather covered hard wood grip.
