The medieval dagger is a short bladed weapon with simple or double cutting edge. This combat weapon was used as a poniard or a knife. There are several kinds. It can be used defensively as well as offensively. The dagger was sometimes placed in the boot of the knight to protect himself in case of fall from his horse.
The reproduction of the Basilard, Baselard, Baslard Swiss dagger is a cutting weapon as well as a thrusting weapon, used by the European soldier for close combat. This dagger has a wooden handle. The diamond section blade has a triangular shape. The guard, the grip and the pommel are a single wooden piece riveted on the metal piece. This construction allows an easy handling of the grip. Double edged, this 20.80 cm blade is very narrow to penetrate easily between the plates of the breastplate of the opposing fighter.
These weapons very often cause deadly wounds, the famous German Combat Master Hans Talhoffer quoted: “They start using daggers, Please God come to the rescue them!”
