Together with our classic French rapier, this French parrying dagger is part of a matching set. It has a sharply curved crossguard with an extra ring for skillfully parrying attacks. The blade with a short ricasso is remarkable for its simplicity – characteristic of the late Renaissance – while the grip reveals the true elegance of this parrying dagger. The tang is embedded in genuine horn with a groove filled with sophisticated braided wire – for beauty and a secure grasp. The seams between the crossguard and grip and the pommel and grip are also filled with decorative rings of braided wire. You can romanticize the graceful shapes of a rapier and matching dagger, but at the same time, remember that they are deadly close combat weapons.
The French parrying dagger comes with a black leather scabbard featuring a mount and chape.

Price QualityTomThe only real complaint with this item is the grip, contrary to the image shown it is white not brown with a golden swirl through it, not really a negative just something to be aware of. The weapon as a whole is brilliant its well held together and its sharpness is adequate. The sheath is also solid, not literally though. it holds the dagger perfectly t I shook it pretty hard and it remained within the sheath however it can still fall out if you shake it enough. Overall I'm pleased with the dagger and the service was great it took two days to reach me with an Early delivery too.
