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"
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.
