15thC Working/Fighting Bollock Dagger TC115
Bollock daggers started around 1300 and were utility knives and at the time that meant both for working around the home, farm and general tasks and part of that would have been civil defence. This blade form is all about this dual use. The double edge is all about fighting and the flat recessed blade back is all about tasks and work and its lowly status is shown in its lack of a guard.
What appears to be an unusual blade shape was actually far more common that you may think and is easily found in late 15thC examples.
The dagger comes with a double layer leather sheath with some incised decoration and a decorated brass chape.
Grip length - 9.5cm/3.75"
Blade length 22cm/8.5"
Overall length - 33cm/13"
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.
