All steel with olive form pommel and quillon terminals. Elongated baluster form grip. 6 7/8” triangular blade with squared baluster base. The dagger was historically considered a weapon for men of low station, untrained in sword skills. It became more popular in several forms in the 16th century, however, the stiletto was still considered a tool of secrecy, intrigue, and deception. That so many were made casts an unsavory character on life in general at the time. Classic example for these.
