Hi All,

Well I have had a bit of a run on Baselards recently and here are 3.

I made a pair for one customer of a 15thC style with quite a 'hard' and defined grip shape and of normal dagger proportions with about a 12" blade, this used one I made for Felix R couple of years ago as a base starting point. It has box wood grips, brass pins and some file work on the tang sides.

The other is a small sword sized knife with a 24" blade (by Owen Bush) and is based on one from Oakeshotts collection and shown on page 336 of 'The Archaeology of weapons'. This is a 14thC piece and has a slightly more rounded and bulbous handle. Unfortunately I didn't take and stats down before I sent it out, but even with such a broad blade and no pommel as such it handled very nicely. A wicked little piece with box wood grips, and steel pins.

The thrid dagger is one I made for a customer, proudly sent him the pictures at which point he reminded me he had cancelled it 3 months before..........such is the life of a terminally admin challenged maker. So this dagger is available for any interested at 230. It has box wood grips, copper split rivets for the grips and solid steel rivets for the guard/blade intersection. This dagger was based on one in the RA and shown here

I hope you like them and if there is anything you would like to know please ask away.

Tod

Great reproductions.

Do you have full stats / dimensions for the 3 Baselards? Overall length, blade length, weight, blade width etc?


Here are some more pics of the original Baselard from the Royal Armouries:

I generally don't take stats down for daggers and unfortunately I didn't take them down for the sword/dagger which I should have done.

Hopefully the new ower will will be able to drop me a line and I will try to get something posted up.
