Ear Dagger




This dagger is a rare one. Named because the distinctive shape of its pommel. Ear Daggers most often have a single sharpened edge that ends with an acute point. You can see many different versions on Google

I was unable to find much information about the dagger but found it rather interesting, the name and what it looks like. However I did find THIS website and they do have a bit more info. 





*Disclaimer: I have done extensive research on each of these weapons. I am aware that there are many different versions of each of these weapons. I am not trying to spread false information. If you know and can prove any information wrong, please let me know and I will fix my errors.  I have at least three references for all research on the weapons I will discuss through the challenge.

  7. Hi,

    Your article on the Ear Dagger is interesting. Presently, I am living in Germany and they have a knife/dagger exhibition here every year. Participants come from all over Europe.

  9. It actually looks cute. It should be called the Mickey Mouse Ear Dagger. But that probably wouldn't be appropriate. :)
