Review

Fast, I mean real fast. So fast that it blurs when you fight with it. OK maybe I’m exaggerating but I own a couple of daggers and me and my group often take part in Dagger duels. Now I’m known for fighting with slightly heavier weapons just so I can train my arms up for the faster moves later. However once I’ve taken enough of a beating I know it’s time for me to step up my game and use a quicker weapon. This Dagger is my weapons of choice time and time again.

It’s held up incredibly well considering the beatings I’ve given it, moves so fast I don’t think I’ve ever actually lost a dagger duel when I’ve used it.

On first inspection I must admit the light weight did make me wonder as to just how durable the weapon would be. The pommel isn’t wrapped around the handle, rather it is a shape cut out and placed on which always gives me doubts about how likely it would be to fall off during combat, so far however this weapon is holding up incredibly well! The light weight is obviously a massive asset towards it’s speed and lets be real, who needs a tough dagger anyway? Most of the time you’re avoiding your opponents blade rather than trying to strike it. (in a dagger duel at least) So all things considered I’d say this dagger does the job it’s supposed to do.

Conclusion.

I spent long and hard deciding whether to give this weapon a 5 out of 5 rating, and eventually decided to go with 4.5. The reason being If you are not looking to play as an elven style character (or don’t have a reason why you’re character could use an elven weapon) then this ┬áblade isn’t for you. Also Some people may find hat over time the weapon deteriorates, purely down to the fact that this is a small foam latex dagger and not as durable as the simple boffer weapons or injection molded ones that exist out there. However if you can use this dagger for your character, you will not be disappointed.
