May I be so bold as to inquire of the subject of these screenshots?

I hinted that *I'd really like to have one of those old Fairbain-Sykes stiletto commando knives from WWII for my military antiques collection*, but alas, I recieved not a one. It would seem that those closest to me have no stomach for weaponry. Fortunately, I'm not afraid to buy one myself. They can't thwart me!

Except, possibly, a dead rat in a plastic bag.

Teehee, I think he got it at Bass Pro shop. It Gerber, and it is a folding blade so I can tuck it in my purse “if needed”……

* Asks Gil, do you want to hold it*

I want to have a dagger myself, you know...

But my mother doesn't let me buy one at the medieval fairs. :frowns: She always manages to convince me against it. I want an actual dagger, not just a decorative one. Not too lavishly decorated either. Just something simple, but good.

[weaponry expert mode]No thanks. A gutting knife is very useful for hunting, when after you've shot your game you need to rip its guts out quickly, but I never go hunting. When it gets up close and personal, and your *gut* instinct kicks in, you need something smooooth.

That's why your standard-issue Marine Ka-bar knife is popular in the army. Thin. Smooth. Goes in and comes back out nicely. [/weaponry expert mode]

Don't forget to hone out the fuller on it so the bleed out from the penetration is better. I was always told that in WW2 most folks prefered their pack shovel with a sharpened edge.

For the most basic of slash attacks, yes. For example, one could simply decapitate his adversary this way. However, with most daggers, the preferred method of attack was to either insert it between the ribs of the left side of the chest, or up and underneath the sternum bone, bringing instant death. Previously given examples of fighting knives are built for these types of attacks.
