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. :p

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.


I was so tempted by that piece. I almost took the plunge. Glad it went to a good home.
Finished this one last summer: http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?p=282185

Here is a Franken-dagger. An amalgam of two MRL pieces. The modified crosshilt and pommel from a sword hilted dagger, and the blade of a poignard. The blade has been shortened to 13.75" to remove the ricasso. It measures 19.5" over-all.
The pommel was reduced in size (1.5" diam) and thickness. And the crosshilt shortened to 3" across.

Yes, thank you, I will take good care of it - And hopefully some better photographs sometime!

I'm afraid I can resist anything... but temptation.
And in addition to that, I have no sense of self-preservation, so I -had- to take the plunge! :lol:

However, James did mention that he's planning to do just one more, an exact repro (Even done in proper wrought iron for the hilt guard) of the one in the Met, and then he'll be done with that style of dagger, at least for another 5 or so years.

@Terry & Sean
Lovely pieces - Proper quillons always look so... elegant.
I have only one quillon dagger, from Albion.
Here is a matching scabbard/sheath from DBK for my Albion Knight sword and Arn dagger.

Here is the Windlass Soldier's Dagger. It has been around since 2006, which is a long life for one of their products. It is a good piece for its price, especially the one I paid for it as a Deal of the Day item. It seems pretty sturdy and solid, though, like many of Windlass's daggers, it has a screw-on pommel. It will be good for my purpose, which will be as a stage prop.

the leather scabbard is adequate. I don't know why they chose brown instead of matching the black grip, but it's no big deal.

The blade is 9.75 inches long and 1.375 wide at the guard.

I have posted this elsewhere, but here it is again - a very attractive 14th Century dagger from Arms and Armor, which looks like a number of items on this thread, especially the one by Peter Johnsson.

Here's one I just received from Josh Davis last week. It's based on a piece on loan to the Met.

This is kind of a quillon dagger, so I'll add it, too. It's Tod Cutler's new Antenna Quillon Dagger.

I bought The same antennae dagger during Todís 4th of July sale.

I have to say this is the best $100 dagger Iíve ever bought.

I did the same thing, though itís weird to shop a 4th of July sale from a British seller. :) I agree about the quality. The quality you get for the price is hard to beat.
Great additions as well Chad.

You've been busy of late!

Is the Tod's cutler dagger peened?

Yes, all tod cutler pieces are peened.
These aren't quillon daggers but they are Tod Cutler. I got the baselard from his July 4th sale. Great daggers at a reasonable price. Rondel, Baselard, Dudgeon.

So he sent at least three to the States during that sale! I got it with the brown sheath, which I found to be nicely, yet simply, decorated. I was surprised a little by its size, but it conforms to the dimensions of its extant inspiration. I have moderately sized mitts and it fits me perfectly - a really big guy might have to wrap a pinkie.
