Very few weapons hold the mystique and the allure that the dagger has. It has a long history and it predates the sword. Daggers came into being before metal working had evolved and then in the early stages of metal working daggers were made first. As the ability to draw metals into longer shapes daggers were transformed into swords.

The dagger has the reputation for being a weapon of the unscrupulous and the assassin and this is for good reason. During many centuries of the middle ages it was considered dishonorable to use a dagger because it is a weapon that could be hidden and then used without warning. This was considered a violation of the code of conduct of the knight.
