Table manners in the Middle Ages were very different than they are today. The lower classes ate directly from a common pot and the upper classes used a thick piece of bread to spoon up their food. People ate with their hands. A host would provide spoons for soup, forks were the devil's tools, and everyone brought their own knife or dagger. A blade for hunting or everyday use could be useful at the table, and if you had an attractive medieval banquet dagger like this one, you could count yourself lucky. Its dark hardwood grip, brass crossguard with langet and decorative pommel make our medieval banquet dagger a must for period dining.
This banquet dagger comes with a leather scabbard with a mount and chape.
