The Colichemarde dagger emerged during the decline of the Rapier and the rise of the small sword. With a uniquely shaped blade that was extra wide at its forte but then dramatically tapered to a fine needle point. This allowed the sword to be used to parry or oppose even the heaviest weapons, yet remain light enough to be fenced with lightning speed. Cold Steel’s interpretation of this blade closely mirrors the historic original, from extra wide forte to super sharp point. The hilt features a decorative double shell guard, complete with finger loops and knuckle bow, while the grip is completely wire wrapped and capped with a matching pommel. We have also created a matching dagger as an optional companion to this exquisite sword, with a beautifully polished blade, double quillons, and wire wrapped handle.
