"Kriegmeister" is the German word for War Knife, and this weapon is a recreation of the historical battle dagger that was a favorite weapon of soldiers and mercenaries throughout the Late Middle Ages, from about the 14th century to the 16th century. It has a short, straight blade for close quarters combat and for defensive purposes. This dagger makes an effective secondary weapon, and can be used as a primary.
It has a short cross-guard accented with a clam-shell on the side to provide plenty of defense to your hand. The grip is wrapped in suede and capped with a rounded pommel.
