Well, there have been threads on the other varieties of daggers. So Baselards should be there too. I know these are quite scarecly reproduced. But maybe there are some nice ones out there.

So let me start.

I envy that baselard Felix! What a nice knife. Tod just makes the coolest stuff.

Thanks for posting the pictures of it!

Hi Tim,

I like the sheath very much. Could you possibly make another foto of the back side? I am very interested in it's construction and the metalworking. And a very nice piece of steel, too, by the way. Happy)

I don't have anything to add of my own for baselards, but I will mention that I was sorely tempted by that Arma Bohemia piece. Happy

Thanks a lot, Nathan. I thought the metal pieces would have been riveted together on the back, but it seems as if they are soldered? Same with the endpiece. On the original find it looks like its made from one piece.

Thanks for posting the pic Nathan. It's good you had it as my digital camera is broken right now so I couldn't have added any photos. Some of the metal components of this piece are soldered. It's a really nice little piece Chad, maybe if I can ever make one of your get togethers I can bring it...

My goal is to represent a dagger from each of the five general categories of medieval daggers: ballock dagger, baselard, quillon dagger, ear dagger, and rondel dagger.



I've got the bases covered except for the baselard. It's on my list.

My latest purchase, a del Tin baselard with a sheath I hastily had to do.
I am really in love with this dagger, it will be a very nive accessory to my 14th century crossbowmans kit.

My blunted fighting baselard:



I failed to supply the maker with the correct measurments so it turned out much broader than i wanted. But it
works like a charm, so im happy with it!

This isn't historically accurate, but historically inspired. It's a sword/machete hybrid of my own design that was inspired by the baselard.

My Marshall Historical Baselard:



The quality/price is more than reasonable, and I bought it only to have one of this kind, just because I like them, and not thinking in WMA or reenactment. Well, and also because I visited Basel and wanted one only for the name Razz

Here's mine. Made by Tod, and I couldn't be happier! Big Grin

Actually I'm not really sure if it even classifies as a Baselard, but i think that's what's closest.

I would say this is more of a quillon dagger type.

Here's mine from Oso Forge,
Need to re-hilt it to a more historical pattern. No pics of the scabbard I made for it.

Here's a brand-new custom swiss dagger/baselard from A&A. The grip is walnut, while the blade is triangular in section (mid-rib on front, flat on back). The sheath is two layers of leather with a steel frame.
