The dagger's prime role as a weapon of self-defence continued well into the 17th century, although some new variants evolved such as this Main Gauche or left handed dagger. The Main Gauche was held in the left hand and was primarily used in conjunction with the Rapier.


Based on models of 17th century this is an excellent rendition of the timely originals. The blade is constructed of forged EN45 High Carbon Steel and is equipped with a leather covered scabbard. The guard has a beautiful design with curved quillons to protect the hand.

    Lovely Piece of Kit.
    Review by ARK
    I really like this dagger but I'd like it more if the handle was a little longer and wider/fatter but this is just personal preference. The wire wrapping is amazingly done and is more detailed then I'd expected so a nice surprise. The blade is as expected and looks as it does in the photograph - sleek. All in all a great piece of kit.

    Great value for the money.
    Review by Rob C.
    Lovely feel and weight to it. The photos don't do it justice. I am more than pleased with the 17th C Main Gauche, and would recommend it to anyone. Wire wrapping is very secure and uniform, quillions and pommel are clean castings and well attached. The balde is uniform and semi sharpened. As for the temper of the blade only time will tell.
    If you are in two minds, buy it.
