History of Daggers
Daggers are similar to knives and bayonets, but they come in different shapes. The general purpose of all three of these weapons is for fighting or hunting. Apart from the knife and bayonet, the dagger is short and stocky where the full length of the blade is completely sharpened. The most noticeable difference between a knife and a dagger is generally the size. Historically, the dagger has been longer and wider than the knife.
Daggers were one of the most original forms of weaponry. They came about in the prehistoric, or Neolithic, age. Typically, they were made of material such as iron and ivory, and then much later they started being made out of copper. The famous and youngest King of Egypt, Tutankhamun, was buried with two bronze daggers. This has given us evidence that specific materials of daggers were rare.
High quality daggers were also made in Western Europe and were very expensive. Towards the Middle Ages, daggers started to become less rare and much more common for the average man. The daggers were used as tools for work and combat training; they were no longer a rare item. As of today, daggers are only used in war (similar to knives) and are not generally carried around in public like a pocket knife. Most daggers are sold as collectibles or antiques for a collection.
There are many different types of daggers depending on the period in history that they were used. While searching for daggers on GunBroker.com, you can find different sizes and shapes made with different materials. Bone and ivory were much more common materials unlike copper or iron, which are a bit more expensive and rare.
