The Renaissance was a period in European history, from the 14th _17th century, that is regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle ages and modern history. During this period the fighting arts and associated weaponry also went through change. This period gave birth to weapons like the elegant and refined rapier, designed more for duelling and protection than for use on the battlefield.

Our Renaissance Dagger is a weapon of a more refined age. Gone are the straight quillons of the medieval period, in favour of downturned quillons that make parrying easier. The blade is longer and thinner than medieval counterparts and is designed more for thrusting than cutting – whilst still remaining enough mass to solidly parry a blow from a rapier. These parrying daggers were sometimes called “Main Gauche” (French for “Left Hand”) as they were used in conjunction with a rapier, that was held in the right hand. It features solid steel hilt fittings and a leather wrapped grip. The hand forged blade is blunt and great for theatrical and re-enactment use. Not recommended for full contact combat. It comes complete with a laced leather scabbard with belt loop.
