Parrying Dagger (pugnale bolognese)
- Dated: 1550–75
- Culture: Italian
- Medium: partly gilt steel, brass, and wood
- Measurements: wt. 15 oz. (425 g)
Designed to be used together with a rapier, this dagger is fitted with a side ring, recurved quillons, and a depression at the base of one side of the blade to accommodate the thumb and facilitate a firmer grip. The waves in the blade may be intended to act like “speed bumps” in breaking the impact of a blow from an opponent’s blade. The piercing of the fullers (grooves) is a decorative motif.
