Large Parrying Dagger
Right at home in any period between the 15th and 17th century, Cold Steel®’s large parrying dagger would be a prized possession worthy of being handed down through generations.
Made to be equally useful for offense or defense, it sports a long, thick, wide blade that is stout enough to oppose the heaviest sword, yet remains capable of piercing the thickest cloth, leather or even chain mail or light plate! Equipped with extra sturdy downturned quillions and a generous side ring, it offers terrific protection to the hand and the forearm from sword and dagger attacks and is very useful for catching and trapping blades as well. Easily wielded in any direction and with great speed, it comes with a period correct wire-wrapped handle and a strong steel pommel which easily doubles as an impact weapon in its own right.
Delivered fully polished, sharpened and encased in a thick black leather scabbard embellished with a decorative throat and chape, it’s the parrying dagger you have been waiting for, as its advantages are undeniable.

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it’s often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
