Cold Steel Man at Arms (MAA) Crab Claw Dagger

The medieval man-at-arms was a stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. To honor these rugged, salt-of-the-earth warriors, Cold Steel has created a range of true journeyman's weapons called the Man at Arms Collection.
These battle-ready weapons may lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of Cold Steel's high-end weapons, but they are quite similar in quality and performance. The fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that complements the black handles. And when well-oiled, they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.
The Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of Cold Steel's finest blades, but at a markedly reduced price. If you always wanted a Cold Steel piece but couldn't afford one, this collection is made for you.

This beautiful and functional parrying dagger features multiple "crab claw" quillions to block, trap or manipulate an opponent's blade, while its solid steel sail guard offers exceptional hand protection.

Its stiff blade is expertly heat-treated and deeply blued to a rich and lustrous finish before hand-sharpening.
The Crab Claw Dagger features an attractive wire-wrapped handle that is large enough for stout hands, even when wearing modern fencing/HEMA gloves.
For ease of carry and display, the dagger comes complete with a study leather sheath with richly blued steel throat and chape.

Perfect for re-enactments, Historical European Martial Arts and as a fine collectors piece - the Crab Claw Dagger is sure to make a big impression!
