Horn and bone rugger- Swiss German dagger

This Swiss or German form of medieval knife or dagger was common through from the end of the 15thC and into the 16thC.  The single edged blade is useful for work, but the nagel and slightly fancy nature of the dagger means it is for show as much as for work or fighting.

Steel hilt furniture and double layer veg tan leather sheath with bronze chape.

Overall length 39cm/15.5"

Blade length 26cm/10.25

Grip length 11cm/4.25"
