The quintessential continental sidearm, circa late 13/early 1400's - the poignard, predecessor to the main gauche. When you needed a big dagger at your side, the poignard was the piece to carry. Makes a great companion piece with arming swords of the period, and a practical sidearm for those situations where you can't carry a sword but still need a reasonably sizeable blade. 1095 high carbon steel with curved quillons, wire wrapped grip, and matching sheath.
