Overview


Circa 16th Century
This royal Renaissance dagger features a fishtail type pommel popular during the 15th and 16th centuries. The flourish of the pommel and star shaped quillons provided a regal presence that enhanced this quick daggers function. The elegantly long blade has a heavy spine for strength, catering to a powerful thrust. The pommel gives excellent balance while the contoured, hard wood grip gives a solid feel.

Includes matching brown leather sheath with metal throat and tip. Blade is high carbon steel with full tang. Cross guard and pommel are solid metal and nickel-plated. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Although I had never seen this handsome dagger listed in one of the MR catalogues, I found it while browsing the website, and SHAZAM! I became intrigued.  Because of the length of the slim blade and the artistic values of the grip and pommel (which I would call "tulip-shaped," rather than "fishtail," a minor quibble) I expected this dagger to be lightweight; however, when it arrived and I could handle it, I found that my expectation was wrong:  this is a serious weapon with a battle-worthy blade and a solid heft. The thick medial ridge contributes to the weight of the blade and makes it a genuine armour-piercer capable of thrusting through a mail hauberk as if it were canvas.  The handle is beautifully contoured and provides a secure grip.  An outstanding dagger overall!

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!

very sturdy and quite impressive. solid feel and the point is razor sharp.

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.
