Made by Cold Steel, and designed to compliment the Ribbed-shell swept hilt rapier. This main gauche / left hand dagger / parrying dagger features a fully sharpened 1055 high carbon steel double edged blade with a stiff diamond cross section, ideal for delivering a lethal thrust. The upturned quillions are angled to catch, trap, or immobilize an opponent's blade. The grip is styled to match the corresponding rapier - a wood core covered by ray skin with a wire wrapped grip and a heavy ribbed pommel. Comes with a leather scabbard with steel fittings. Even when not paired with the rapier, this dagger is a fearsome weapon in it's own right (and much more convenient to carry/wear inside!)

Here's the Cold Steel video featuring the rapier and dagger:

(Jump to 1:00 to skip the smarmy announcer and to get to the pig-carcass stabbing we've all come to love and expect from Cold Steel promotional videos. Note that jean jackets offer no protection against Renaissance era stabbing weapons, and that balloons are cautioned to fly at least 22 feet from men with swords.)



Price: $390 (rapier)

the companion dagger has been discontinued; the rapier is still available
