The original late medieval dagger is dated 1450 - 1480 and is of Northern Italian origin. It’s intricate and finely crafted form make it likely that the dagger belonged to wealthy knight, noble or well-heeled burgher. Not merely an item of status the blade with its thin profile and stiffened diamond cross section was ideal for piercing through thick cloaks and cloth and for penetrating past the weak points and gaps in an armored harness.
The blade of this reproduction is crafted from high carbon steel and it is securely mounted into a hilt of skillfully carved and polished wood. The embellished guard plate and pommel cap are of antiqued brass. Included with the dagger is a sheath of thick and high quality vegetable tanned leather which is dyed a reddish brown hue and capped with a protective chape of antiqued brass. The sheath is finished with an adjustable leather hanging cord.
