#stabthecovid Dagger Giveaway

Congratulations to Michael Allender, winner of the drawing! This contest has closed.

Who wants this dagger? You know you do. A symbol of knighthood, the rondel developed over the 14th century adapting to the unique nature of knife fights in full harness. With a stiff blade and thin point they were able to work into the gaps between plates, and the flat pommel made a perfect place to push with the whole body to penetrate any mail covering the gap. By the early 15th century it was a symbol of status and began to be adopted by the rising middle class.

In addition to the dagger itself, the sheath has an exterior pocket for a stylish pricker, also included in the giveaway as part of the package. The pricker makes for a handy way to munch on snacks without having to carry around a mess kit. Blade length measures 11 7/8 inches and total length measures 16 1/2 inches, width of blade near pommel is 1 1/8 inches. It is un-sharpened, and not intended to carry an edge, but comes to a true point and is not suitable for sparring as if you stab someone with this they will probably die. Please don’t stab anyone with this.

This sweepstakes will run from 08/17/2020 to 08/31/2020 with a winner being chosen the first of September. Whenever you can, use the hashtag #stabthecovid so your posts, and thus your entries, can be found!
