The Aunlaz dagger is a military and civilian weapon with a double-edged blade with a flattened diamond shape. It was named for a short dagger used by English infantry through the 14th Century. The original, of which I found a description in Arms & Armour of the Crusading Era 1050-1350 by David Nicolle (156B), is noted to have a hilt similar to the baselard though with a narrower blade.

This reproduction is of 6150 steel with a stained hardwood grip, carved with a slight central ridge in an overall oval pattern. The blade is of a flattened diamond cross-section, making a stiff spine for thrusting. The attractively curved quillons and equally long cross-bar in place of a pommel make for a tight, secure grip.

This custom/prototype dagger of the Arms & Armor line also has copper rods added to the "curls" at the ends of the quillons and upper guard.

See our hands-on review for more information on this dagger.
