A dark hardwood grip accents the deadly steel of this stout knife. A piece that would have been contemporary with rondel daggers, this messer would have been the equal to any in knightly hand to hand combat. Strong enough to use as a lever against an armored opponent it could also slice with deadly intent when meeting a softer target than armor.
A solid steel butt and stout guard offer a feeling of power when held in the hand in either grip. This dagger would work well for such combat systems as Liechtenauer or Fiore.
