Swiss Long Dagger
- Dated: early 16th century
- Measurements: overall length 55.3 cm
The dagger features a slender blade of flattened diamond section tapering to a narrow point, struck with a mark on one side, and a small hunting horn formed with a short ricasso. It has an iron hilt of characteristic type, and a guard formed with a pronounced ridge over the base, extended very slightly in a lip over the base of the blade and coming to flattened rear-swept points. The pommel is made en suite and fitted with modern wooden grip.
