The Swiss Dagger was a common weapon of the Swiss pikemen in the 15th and 16th century, which often had a middle position between dagger and sword due to its blade length. The dagger, also known as the baselard, was usually not issued as an item of equipment, but had to be procured privately by the soldiers and then served as a secondary weapon. Made in the tradition of medieval Damascus sword forging, the Twisted Damascus version is the absolute gem in every knife collection. In the Middle Ages, blades made of Twisted Damascus were considered the royal class of blacksmithing, which only the high nobility could afford. In numerous medieval royal tombs daggers with multi-lane Twisted Damascus were found, which were given to the Lord as a special appreciation into the grave.

The four-lane Twisted Damascus consisting of a tool steel containing nickel and manganese, is forged into a blade of perfect symmetry and beauty in an elaborate and very complicated forging process. Each individual web consists of a Damascus package, which is first forged by hand and then twisted fifteen times. Four of these Twisted Damascus bars are then fire-welded and forged into the final blade shape. This structure of the layers not only guarantees the legendary strength of the Damascus blade, but also creates the unmistakable pattern that distinguishes a Twisted Damascus. This historic and very complex forging process, which is mastered by only a few Damascus smiths, is carried out to perfection and exclusively for Boker by Andreas Henrichs.

The dagger blade, sharpened and pointed on both sides, already had a diamond-shaped cross-section in historical models, because this construction proved to be extremely stable and effective. Characteristic of the Swiss Dagger is the design of the pommel and the crossguard. The unusual, curved design can be traced back to the early 13th century and can also be found in the authentic design of our hand-made edition. The shimmering dark handle made of hand-picked certified imported Ebony is bordered by the highly polished pommel and the crossguard and forms a perfect unit with the fine blade.

The leather sheath, specially designed and hand-sewn for this model, underlines the exclusivity of this coveted collector's item. The dagger is provided with an individual serial number and is strictly limited, only 500 pieces were produced. The delivery takes place with a collector certificate in a noble wooden box.

Einwandfreie Qualität und absolut zu empfehlen!

Ich habe mir den Dolch für meine Messersammlung bestellt und bin begeistert. Die Verarbeitung ist insgesamt einwandfrei, der Damast sieht beeindruckend aus und das dunkle Ebenholz hat eine tolle Qualität. Als Sammlerstück kann ich es absolut weiterempfehlen!
