Product Description

Full tang multi-use dagger for the combat re-enactor. Could be used in combat and is ready to go. This dagger features a circular (round) guard & pommel, wooden grip and full tang blade. Scabbard shown in picture is included.

The stiletto blade is long and thin with a triangle cross-section.

The straight narrow blade would not have lent itself to a slashing or sabre action. Rondel daggers that were narrow were ideal in battle for puncturing chain mail, and although they would not have been able to punch through plate armour, they could be forced between the joints in a suit of armour and helmets. This was often the only way in which a heavily armoured knight could be killed.

First developed in Italy, the stiletto dates from the late 1400s, was used well into the renaissance, and is thought to be a development of the rondel dagger or misericordia, a needle-pointed weapon with a narrow blade designed primarily for thrusting, though possessing cutting edges. Early stilettos normally used a one-piece cast-metal handle which was shaped and turned on a lathe. The stiletto blade was usually hammer-forged into a dense rod with a narrow, triangular cross section, without any sharpened edges. However, other examples of the period have emerged bearing round, square, or diamond cross sections.

Size Overall: 403mm (16")
Size Blade, 285mm (11.25")

Please NOTE - This dagger has a rounded tip and is combat safe but the blade is very narrow (10mm average).

Combat Rating = 10 of 10
