Dudgeon dagger

These daggers filled the space between the decline of the bollock dagger and the rise the Scottish dirk in the borders of England and into Scotland toward the end of the 16thC and into the 17thC.

Some say dudgeon is another name for boxwood, but whether it is or not, this has a fluted and faceted box wood grip, with a steel guard and a bronze peen washer.  

The blade is characteristically a dudgeon blade with a  flat back and an etched motto reading 'God gyre thy hand'.  This sort of decoration was typical of these daggers.

Comes with a black double layer leather sheath with bronze chape.
