A severely wounded opponent, who was not expected to survive, would be given a "mercy strike" (French coup de grace), hence the name "misericordia". Later the Gunner's Stiletto became a tool for clearing cannon-fuse touch holes. Used like an automotive oil dip stick, they were often scribed with marks indicating levels of powder charges for ranging distance.comes from the Latin word stilus meaning: "a stake; a pointed instrument".

The Misericorde Dagger was used to dispatch knights who had received mortal wounds, which were not always quickly fatal in the age of bladed combat; it could also be used as a means of killing an active adversary, as during a grappling struggle. The blade could be pushed through the visor or eye holes in the helm with the aim of piercing the brain, or thrust through holes or weak points in plate armor, such as under the arm, with the aim of piercing the heart.
