New Coustille

#501014
$134.95

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.

This was my first purchase from this establishment, and I must say it has done naught but impress.  I got it unsharpened originally, but have since used a tool sharpener to give it a near-razor edge.  I am pleased with the simple elegance of the design, and have gotten many compliments at events I've worn this to.  If you want a short sword or dagger without any gaudy flair, get this one.  Assuming it comes out of a "discontinued" state, of course.

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.
