An excellent and very sharp and sturdy blade! There are minor blemishes in the fishtail hilt, but that's manageable with some very light buffing. I purchased this along with the Venetian stiletto, and both measure up to their sales presentation. As with any of the daggers, if you want to wear it without tucking it inside your belt, you'll need a frog. With my prior purchase of the Medici dagger, the Jambia, Seax, Coustille sword, and the Russian kindjal, I've pretty well wrapped up my requirements for short blades, but there are still many tantalizing products on my wish list. Five stars!
I bought this with the sharpened blade. I am very impressed with the dagger as a whole. This is clearly designed as a thrusting/stabbing type dagger, and although it is nicely sharpened along both sides the thick ridge in the center would probably provide significant resistance to any deep cutting from slashes or chops. But, that ridge also makes it a darn strong blade. Everything is solidly assembled with no wiggles and the dagger stays snugly in the nice sheath when not being used. I also really like the darkwood handle.
