The Baselard Dagger is no longer active on our website and can only be found from off-site links. The Baselard Dagger has been discontinued and is not available for purchase at this time. We will post any new information if it becomes available. The Baselard, in both its shortsword and dagger forms, was a uniquely Swiss weapon as its name suggests. Characterized by its crescent-shaped guard and pommel, the Baselard was long-lived, first appearing in the 13th century and surviving into the 17th century. Our Baselard Dagger is based on an early 15th century piece and features a single-edged diamond-section blade in 5160 high-carbon steel with a riveted tang. The distinctive hardwood grip is capped with engraved steel guard and pommel plates, and an attractive leather-covered scabbard with a belt-retention ring completes the presentation.
