This iconic Renaissance dagger is a faithful reproduction of A811, a German early 16thC quillon dagger from the Wallace Collection. It is fabulously Gothic and has very typically Landsknecht quillons and a 'Fleur de Lys' pommel. Grip is horn and hilt is steel.
The blade is a strong 8mm thick and slowly tapers to the tip with a transition from single edged to full diamond along the blade giving a very strong form.
The sheath is finished with a typically woven Landsknecht knot and a fabricated steel chape.
Overall length 42cm/16.5"
