Though not always depicted in period art or on brasses and effigies, it's difficult to imagine a soldier without some kind of dagger, regardless of their social class. One essential feature of a dagger is its security in the hand. There were many different attempts to address that need and the form of this dagger, a kind of proto-Swiss dagger (or baselard) must have been an effective solution. The curving plates that make up the hilt lock the hand in place.

The Aunlaz dagger by Arms & Armor features a double-edged steel blade. The grip is faceted, stained hardwood while the guard and pommel plates are formed (not cast) of steel. The sheath is a fancier version of their standard leather sheath, with stamped lines and patterns inspired by historic sheaths.
