A forerunner of many long parrying daggers of later years, the poignard's long reach made it very effective. It saw much use in its own day as a backup weapon on the battlefield. They were even carried at court when swords were forbidden, and they made formidable weapons in the hands of an expert. The forward curving steel guard and wire wrapped hilt are especially elegant on this version of the long dagger poignard. Tempered high carbon steel blade. Understated, classic and deadly, the long dagger poignard is the perfect complement to your Renaissance or late Middle Ages outfit. Includes matching black leather scabbard with steel fittings. Circa 1390.

Overall 52cm (20 ½”), blade 37cm (14 ¾”) long, 3.5cm (1 3/8”) wide, 4.8mm (3/16”) thick. Weight 600g (1 lb 4 oz). Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
