Here is another one by Michael Pikula that is more a Cinquedea but I guess one could call it a quillon dagger but with a very VERY wide blade.

See below for a beautiful dagger made by Peter Johnsson.

This piece is based on a surviving dagger located in Skoklster Castle, Sweden.

More details and photos will have to wait.

I'm glad people are adding to all these threads. In addition to being fun for each of us to show off whatever we have, these threads also become repositories of large amounts of pictures for future shoppers to peruse.

I love all the daggers shown here. Happy Fun stuff!

Many of the pics may already have been posted on other Topic threads when the person originally purchased them but this way we can have a Topic where they are easy to find all together and maybe these Topics can become spotlight Topics if they accumulate enough pics. Wink Cool

That's the goal. Happy We'll have specific threads dedicated to specific forms so people don't have to look at a bunch of threads to find pics of one kind of thing.

Man I love this piece...with it's sharp diamond section point and deep fueller it looks as if someone had picked up a broken albion crecy on the battle field to hilt it as a dagger. The leatherwork on the scabbard is fantastic too.

You're definitely spoiling yourself lately Nathan Happy

Cheers,

Julien

Many of these things I've had for a long time and haven't shown publicly. Other things have been back-logged and came in all at once after a four-year stint of not getting anything. So yes, I do feel spoiled. I really do. I need to reduce the size of my collection to make me feel comfortable, but believe me that the Peter Johnsson dagger is not going anywhere any time soon! Haha...

It's a beautiful dagger.

Here are a few quillon daggers -

A discontinued Arms and Armor Classic Medieval dagger.

A main gauche from Baltimore Knife and Sword. I'm not sure that it qualifies as a quillon dagger.

And an old Windlass, a great stage dagger - looks great, but is fairly harmless.

I had my photo equipment out today, so I figured I'd do some group shots to update these threads. I also hope bringing them back up to the top will encourage others to post their stuff. Happy

Here is my old Windlass Sword-Hilted Dagger. Originally it came with a pretty chintzy wire wrap, loose cross guard and cheap black leather sheath. Jonathan Sarge at Crusader Monk did some good work on the scabbard and handle wrap, and even tightened up the cross without me even asking. Definitely a good guy to do business with.

While this piece does not fit my 15th century kit, I could not resist taking it of James G. Elmslies hands at the RL Scott conference in Glasgow, especially after it had been admired and praised by Peter Johnsson himself. If he would like to take a closer look at it now, he'll have to approach me. Razz

I just HAD to have it!

A lovely piece I might very well base a future 13th kit on. Colours and heraldry feel very right.
