A dagger is a special heavy knife specifically designed for fighting or hunting. The dagger is one of the most ancient weapons in the world and one of the first metal weapons of any significance to be widely used. most European fighting daggers were double-edged, though hunting daggers could be single-edged. A dagger is strengthened for penetrating flesh, bone and even armour. Extremely lethal at close range, daggers in one form or another were the single most ubiquitous weapon on the Medieval battlefield. Due to its speed and penetrating ability a dagger is a very dangerous weapon at close range, and small daggers are sturdier than larger ones. For game purposes a small dagger has a blade between 5”-9”. Some small daggers had large quillions for blocking, treat these as 0/6/1 or even 0/6/2 weapons.
