Circa 1300

The Coustille was developed in an effort to create an all-in-one weapon. It served as both a long dagger and a short sword, making it popular with knights as well as the rank and file. Convenient to carry like a dagger but with the cutting power of a short sword, it was long enough to use for defense but still could be thrust under a belt to ride easily with. The well-tempered blade is light and very fast with the cutting power of a short sword. It could pass as a dagger in towns where only nobles could openly carry a sword, making it a favorite for the ne’er do well. Steel pommel and guard with a wood grip covered in leather. Includes scabbard. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for additional fee.
  • Overall: 22"

It would be a good short sword except the blade is prone to rust quickly in a humid locale.

An excellent dagger! I purchased this to make a matched set to go with the Baron hand and a half sword. Makes a beautiful display. I also chose to have it sharpened and it came capable of shaving the hair on my arm! Thanks Museum Replicas, Terry Balentine

I like the way the hilt grows wider in the middle, thus making for a good grip. Its light and fast. When J.R.R. Tolkien writes in "The Lord of the Rings" that Legolas carried a "long knife," its this coustille that I imagine, rather than those ridiculous, dinky curved blades he was given in the movies.
