After the club, daggers are man's oldest tool and weapon. Historically they were usually double edged and used to deliver quick, lethal strokes. Their small size made it perfect for those more nefarious types. They were also used in the "two handed" fighting style popularized by the French during the Renaissance.
This dagger has a thick, tri-sided blade for punching through almost anything. Elaborate, deep filigree work on the pommel and guard are lavishly plated in 24-karat gold and the wooden handle has been adorned with a swirled gold chain. The matching wooden scabbard is leather covered and has matching, ornate gold-plated fittings. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
