Baselard daggers were everywhere in medieval Italy and worn by, knights, soldiers and civilians.  They were an incredibly popular style characterised by the hilts in the form of a capital ‘i’. Baselards like this are seen in artwork and on Knight's effigies throughout the late 14thC and the 15thC and even became popular in England and was the dagger used by Wat Tyler, the leader of the Peasant’s revolt (1381 England) 

This medieval baselard dagger is forged from one piece of steel, has a faceted and polished horn grip with latten (brass) pins and slightly curved guards.  The blade is a strong diamond section with a central fuller and the sheath is double layer naturally tanned leather with incised and stamped decoration and finished with a decorated latten (brass) chape.

Blade length 22cm/8.5”

Overall length 34cm/13.5”

Grip length 9.5cm/3.75”

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.

Please note: The colours may vary in tone from the photos here.  Each skin of leather is different and reacts differently to the dye so they may be darker or lighter in tone
