Cretzer with ring (Dagger), the Katzbalger dagger

Legend :

When the Renaissance began, warfare was entering a great era of changes. The upbringing of firearms made heavy armor less useful, and techniques adapted. The landskenechte were one of the most recognizable trained units because of their gear: mulit-coloured puffed sleeves, gigantic berets and some of the most iconic weapons of the time. Between lances and zweihanders, landskenechte all used a much shorter sword, whose guard aided in parrying: the Katzbalger. Worn without a scabbard, it could be drawn quickly when dire times came, like when their walls of lances were rendered inefficient. It’s thanks to their great training, discipline and iconic gear, like the Katzbalger, that these military men are still remembered today.

Workshop :

The Katzbager bring in view our new blade. This innovation has a better-defined point and sharper edges. However, as it is made of our famous Calimacil foam, it stays safe and extremely durable. Steel-coloured, the blade sits atop of a silver handle with tarnished gold details. The silver guard can be removed, the same way as our katanas’ tsubas, for an easier storage and diversity of use.

Characters :

The Katzbalger dagger absolutely must be part of historical reenactors’ outfits, especially those of the Renaissance. Tragic heroes will appreciate its theatrical aspect, as will some fighters and duelists who’s styles and panache can’t be matched. Moreover, many mages and merchants will learn to love its guard, a unique feature for a dagger.
