QUILLON DAGGER W.I.P.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

allways enjoy making daggers and there are so many designs in history that i will never have to make the same type twice :) .and since i'm not ready for a sword yet, i make small steps by making my daggers a little bit longer every time.

this time i wanted to make a late medieval-early rainessance dagger (i think) similar to the ones that parry with rapier swords.

blade forged from an old spring...

i didn't want to use any power tools so only files and after HT water stones.....

for the rest project i have the help of a friend who is farrier so he is familiar with forging but not with steel.

i had the idea to forge a guard with a twisting ring but it came out too complicated for our forging skills at the moment and didn't came out

as expected.

the pieces that didn't work out...

maybe next time.so we decided to make something much simpler and rough forged it to file a lot more material.the safe way :rolleyes:
