Deschaux parrying dagger, circa 1590
The left hand, or Ring Hilt, dagger, was employed in the art of rapier and dagger sword play. It was often worn at the back tilting to the left for easy access. This coordinates nicely with our three ringed Deschaux rapier. The parts are steel and the bone grip is wrapped in wire for a good grasp. Includes scabbard. More information...
