Cold Steel Italian Dagger 88ITD
Since Cold Steel's Italian Long Sword is light and well balanced enough to use in one hand they thought they would offer a companion dagger to take the place of a shield, targe, or buckler. Scaled down in size but almost identical in appearance, its sharply tapered, double edged blade slightly favors attacks with the point over the edge and is stiff and strong enough to parry any sword. Additionally, its simple cruciform hilt is also all business with a long upturned cross guard, leather-over-wood grip, and a counter balancing fish tail pommel. Replicates the form from three centuries (approximately from 1350 to 1650). Constructed from 1055 Carbon Steel. Includes leather/wood scabbard with steel fittings.
