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.
