The latest addition to the Man at Arms series, this Shell Guard style Main Gauche is a parrying dagger designed to be used in conjunction with a longer blade. Its lengthy solid steel quillons and shell guard protect the users hand from incoming attacks while offering plenty of leverage for deflecting, parrying and temporarily binding the opponent's blade. Beautifully balanced with a sturdy pommel counter balancing its stiff and sharp blade. Lustrously blued to a deep black luster, with an aged leather grip, it's as good looking as it is effective! Includes leather scabbard with blued steel fittings. 1090 Carbon steel.
