This matching dagger to the Dresden Rapier has all the elements of a renaissance left hand dagger. The guard has a ring filled with a pierced plate and quillons that turn forward and up. The pommel and guard are finished in the same handsome chiseled wave pattern as the rapier.

The blade has a fullered ricasso, which allows for placement of the thumb on the back side of the blade as certain schools of fence require. The grip is bound in blackened steel wire.

Has a black leather scabbard, matching rapier, and by-knife.
Overall length: 17"
Width of guard: 4.5"
Blade: 12" long; 1.125" wide tapering to .5"
Grip and pommel: 5"

Maker: Arms & Armor of Minnesota.
Inspired by an original located in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (Cat. No. M34a-1948).
