"Who understands my malice and my art will also gain a good understanding of many other weapons." - Fiore dei Liberi


In medieval warfare and combat, daggers were among the most common and versatile weapons. They were typically short-bladed, ranging from 15 to 50 centimeters (6 to 20 inches) in length. They were used for a variety of purposes, including close-quarters combat, self-defense, hunting, and everyday tasks.

The design of daggers varied depending on their intended use and the preferences of the wielder. Some daggers featured double-edged blades, making them effective for both thrusting and slashing attacks, while others had single-edged blades optimized for stabbing. The hilts of daggers can be found in all forms, they vary from the very simple to the extremely ornate.

On the other hand, “parrying daggers” were a specialized type of dagger designed specifically for off-hand use. They typically had a larger guard and a longer blade than standard daggers, allowing for more effective blocking and parrying of incoming attacks. Parrying daggers were usually used in conjunction with other weapons, such as rapiers or swords, in dueling and fencing.

In combat, daggers and parrying daggers were employed for quick strikes, thrusts, and defensive maneuvers. They were particularly useful in close combat scenarios where larger weapons were impractical or unavailable. Skilled fighters could use daggers to exploit gaps in an opponent’s defenses or to disarm them during combat.

While the use of daggers declined with the advent of firearms and changes in military tactics, they remained popular as symbols of authority, status, and self-defense. Today, daggers are valued artifacts of medieval history and are still used in certain martial arts and ceremonial contexts.
