Templar Dagger with Scabbard
This handsome reconstruction of a 13th c. Templar dagger was named after Jacques de Molay (1240/1250 – 1314), the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar (also known as the Order of Solomon’s Temple or the Order of Christ).
The Molay dagger has a fullered, hardened and tempered EN45 spring steel blade with unsharpened edges and a pointed tip. The blade’s full tang is threaded to the pommel. The wooden core grip is tightly bound in black leather and capped with a thick, sturdy disc-shaped steel pommel (or wheel pommel) adorned on both sides with a Templar cross. The artfully crafted steel guard is 12 cm long, 0.6 cm thick and features twisted, flared quillons with cross-shaped cut-outs.
This high medieval crusader dagger comes complete with a wood-and-leather scabbard with steel throat, chape and articulated suspension rings. The cross motif with trefoil-shaped ends adorning the pierced guard and the pommel is repeated on the observe side of the sheath’s locket.
Please note that this medieval dagger is not a battle ready weapon. It is designed as a collector’s or decoration/display piece and is not suited for combat reenactment. Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, e.g. to complete your costume.
