An Italian dagger with curved quillons and shell guard, circa 1600. Quite elegant, attractive, and effective. High carbon steel blade, lightly blackened/antique finish hilt and fittings. Comes complete with leather and steel scabbard. This dagger matches the Shell-guard rapier, my description of which includes a rather inspired rant.
