New Coustille

#501014
$135.00

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.

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.

Iron Feasting Utensils

#800166
Olde English Bokes Of Curtesye (Books of Courtesy) admonished readers not to spit across the table, butter bread with their thumbs, or wipe their teeth and knives on the tablecloth! Still, uncouthness often reigned, even at a noble's table. Utensils like these, which closely model those used from the early Iron Age to the Middle Ages, had to compete with the convenience of fingers. The handle for each hand-forged piece is given the traditional blacksmith's twist. and the knife is capable of holding an edge.
