Daggers

THE DAGGER is a weapon with very special symbolic value. It is an important stage in the turning of the ordinary knife into a double blade thrusting and stabbing weapon. The dagger was known as noble arm in the 12th century when it became part of knight’s weaponry as the "knightly dagger", or more properly cross-hilt or quillon dagger, and later was used for additional defense in close combat with swords, court swords or rapiers. In modern times the dagger is a part of military equipment and it is worn with pride in some special forces as a sign of courage and daring in combat. In our collection we expose examples of different kinds and worldwide styles of daggers and we are trying to show their significance in world military ceremonies and blade making culture.

In the given category you may familiarize yourself with a dagger. This type of weapon stands as the further evolutionary grade of a primitive knife. So what makes it different from the other types of bladed weapon? Briefly, it is specific due to the presence of several edges (typically, two) crowned with a very sharp point.

Dagger: through remote antiquity to nowadays

It initially served as the weapon for face-to-face combat aimed to protect its owner and cause severe injuries to the opponent. We should also consider the ancient historical evidences of its sacred and ceremonial meaning. Thus, it was involved in different rites as a specific attribute for ritual sacrifices, body modifications and as the religious artifact itself. The earliest specimens of handmade daggers comprised of ivory, flint or animal bones date back to Neolithic era. Since that time humankind has mastered the art of smelting and forging, and later we can see further samples made of copper, iron and even gold.

Dagger also plays an important role in world history, as it caused the death of power players. Julius Caesar was cruelly murdered by the repeated series of dagger stabs. And he was just a man among hundreds and thousands of victims in the lasting battles of ideas and principles.
