#159 Writhen Parrying Dagger
To compliment our Writhen Rapier #151 we have chosen to reproduce a similarly styled parrying dagger from the Bashford & Dean collection in The Metropolitan Museum in New York. This decorative roping technique is an excellent example of the renaissance craftsman combining function and form in a weapon. This particular piece has a fullered blade with decorative chiseling on the ricasso block. The grip is covered in twisted wire with turksheads top and bottom.



Original: Circa 1580, German Bashford Dean Collection, Metropolitan Museum, New York (29.157.17)

Overall length: 16"; Blade length: 11.3; Blade width: .94"
