basilard

4

A Basilard - XIVth century.

Spring steel blade, hand-forged in one piece as seen on period examples, with oak scales and silver pins.
Quite the beast of a dagger, almost a short sword.

OAL 655 mm with a 508 mm blade.

Also, notice that the wood had cracked on the left “quillion” ; instead of making a new scale, I replaced the part that had broken off ; I believe it is what would have been done “back then” had the piece been damaged for whatever reason.
