Ballock dagger IB Damascus, sale

It is easy to guess why the name of  Ballock dagger is related to. This kind of daggers were also called ´kidney dagger´ in the Victorian era, and seems to emerge in the early 14th century in which we can see some examples in effigies that suggests a knightly and warrior use. However, it´s been known that with the time the Ballock Daggers were used by merchants, craftsmen and even peasants. The dagger can be considered one of the kinds with a longer lifespan, appearing in the14th century and being in use yet in the 18th century by the Scots in form of phallic-like dirks.

The ballock dagger is a type of dagger with a distinctively shaped grip, with two oval swellings at the guard resembling male genitalia ("ballocks"). The guard is often in one piece with the wooden grip, and reinforced on top with a shaped metal washer. The dagger was popular in Flanders, England and Scotland between the 13th and 18th centuries and in particular the Tudor period. It was commonly carried by many Border Reivers, as a backup for the lance and the sword. A large number of such weapons were found aboard the wreck of the Mary Rose.  In the Victorian period weapon historians introduced the term kidney dagger, due to the two lobes at the guard, which could also be seen as kidney-shaped, in order to avoid sexual connotations.
