The sword breaker (German Degenbrecher) is a Western European dagger of the 15th-17th centuries, distinguished by large deep teeth along one side of the blade, resembling a comb, which formed a trap designed to capture enemy weapons: sword, sword, rapier. It was used as a dagger for the left hand when fencing, paired with a rapier or a one-handed sword. This weapon did not have a large distribution due to the complex technique of possession and low suitability as a dagger itself.
