The baselard or "Swiss dagger" is a historical Swiss blade weapon with a crescent-shaped pommel and crossguard. The baselard's characteristic hilt features a crescent-shaped pommel and crossguard. Their curved shapes appeared as early as the 13th century and remained peculiar to Switzerland, and do not appear to have been imitated elsewhere. Their blade was characteristically double edged, tapering to a point and was, on earlier examples, sometimes diamond shape in cross-section. This form would lend a great deal of strength to the blade, especially useful for piercing armor.
Baselards were also very popular with the Swiss pikemen throughout the 15th and 16th centuries. They were somewhere between a long dagger and a short sword, with a blade length averaging some 40 cm (16 in) in the early 15th century, reaching up to 70 cm (28 in) towards the end of the 15th century. Baselards were not usually issued as ordnance weapons, but purchased privately as secondary weapons by soldiers. For this reason, there never emerged a definite standard form, and variations in hilt and blade design remained the rule from their inception in the 13th century until the weapon's decline in the 17th century.
