Strongblade Lore
(A Bit of History According to Strongblade)

The Curved Dagger

Daggers and knives are amongst the oldest weapons used by man (ok some woman too. Let's not forget about Lorena Bobbitt...ouch).

The earliest daggers were made of stone, ivory or bone. The first metal daggers appeared during the Bronze Age beginning in 3500 BC.

Daggers and knives differ from one another. Daggers are weapons where knives are cutting tools. Daggers have two sharpened edges which make them very effective weapons for thrusting or stabbing. Knives only have one sharpened edge and are typically considered a cutting tool.

The curved dagger can be traced back to prehistoric times, in fact many believe (at least many of us here at Strongblade) that the first model for the curved dagger were the fangs of magnificent Saber Toothed Tiger. These now extinct beasts used its large curved canine like fangs to take down prey much greater in size than itself. These fangs greatly resemble the curved daggers offered by Strongblade.

Curved blades have been the traditional choice of hunters. The curved blade can be used to slash the ligaments or arteries of prey. Once the prey has been taken the curved blade may be used to skin or clean the fallen kill.

The curved dagger has been used as a weapon in many cultures, particularly in African and Middle Eastern cultures. Generally, a straight blade is a better choice for combat when the combatants are wearing armor. Often there are small gaps in armor that can be penetrated by a straight blade but not a curved blade. However, when the combatants battle without armor, the curved blade can do potentially more damage. Because of the curvature of the blade, it can critically wound and opponent when used as a thrusting or slashing weapon.
