  • Regular price £75.00

The medieval Swiss German Baselard dagger (TC55) was very popular throughout Europe from Italy through to Scotland and everywhere in-between, but strangely, they had two very different forms.  

The Swiss/German form has a 'rat tail' tang through the grip and curved steel guards top and bottom.  The blade is robust, short, wide and transitions from a diamond section to a hexagonal form near the guard with a very slight flare.

Overall length 36cm/14"

Blade length 23cm/9"

Grip length 10cm/4"


Edge sharpness

Semi-Sharp is 'butter knife sharp'; it has a very fine flat on the edge

Sharp has been ground to give a reasonable cutting edge, but final honing, if required, is by the customer.
