This style of medieval dagger, quillon, is a real classic of European weaponry and is dated from the 11thC through to the 14thC. Antennae, aunlaz or anelace quillon dagger.

It is simply constructed from two bent steel guards with the rolled ends filled with brass inserts and a stout double edged blade; the knife is peened.

The sheath is double layered with a brass chape and incised decoration to front and back.

Overall length 37cm/14.5"

Blade length 25cm/10"

Grip length 9cm/3.5"

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.
