Well, I haven't posted an update since 2015, so perhaps it's time. Happy Here's my collection of daggers, current as of this afternoon.

In rough period order, from left to right:

Davis Reproductions 13th century dagger (based on item on loan to the Met)
Custom Arms and Armor Swiss Dagger (based on examples in the Swiss Landesmuseum)
Arms and Armor Classic/Crusade dagger hybrid (similar to published daggers)
Davis Reproductions 14th century rondel dagger (based on one in a private collection)
Custom Arms and Armor rondel dagger (based on one in the Museo Bargello)
Davis Reproductions ballock dagger/by-knife (pommel cap based on a French example, the rest a hybrid of styles)
Tod's Workshop spiderweb quillon dagger (based on X.7 in the Royal Armouries)
Arma Bohemia ballock dagger (based on one in the German History Museum)
Vince Evans Scottish dirk (based on a couple of historic examples)

A few more small group shots, just to show the variety within a given dagger family.

Nice! Iíd love to get my hands on a bunch of Tod Cutler pieces to review for the site. But I donít have any physical space in my collection or the cash to swing it right now. Sad

Here is a Tlingit dagger that Tod make for me a few years ago.
I tried to get someone from the Tlingit nation to make one for me, but none of the artisans responded to any of my inquiries.
I have always loved Tod's work, and he was able to make this utterly perfect reproduction.

Harry,
That's one of the cooler things I've seen in a while. Happy I remember you and Tod posting about it back when it was made, but I'd forgotten how beautiful (and massive) it is. I know there's a pretty heavy Euro-focus among posts here, but I really enjoy seeing these things from elsewhere in the world. Thanks for re-posting it.

Happy
