A beautiful Renaissance dagger by Windlass Steelcrafts based on Italian daggers from the 16th century. The dagger has a fish tail pommel that was very popular in the 14th and 15th centuries and star-shaped quillions. Daggers like this were used by merchants, travelers, noblemen and soldiers as a close combat weapon and for self-defense on the battlefield or on the road. The tip of this dagger could be stabbed into chainmail, between armor parts or into a thick garment. The pommel gives the dagger an excellent balance while the hardwood grip lies comfortably in the hand. The semi-sharp blade is made of tempered 1055 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. Perfect for reenactment, a Medici or Borgia Cosplay and for collectors of Italian weapons. If you blunten the blade, it is suitable for reenactment battles and for Historical European Martial Arts.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
