Daga is a European dagger with a hard blade that has been used since the XIVth century, from knights to merchants. It was also used as an auxiliary weapon in the left hand to defend and retaliate.
The hilt is made of stabilized wood (birch). It gives wood extra strength, as well as shows the pattern of wood fibers. The process includes impregnating the preform in a polymer solution; often dye is added to the solution. Under high pressure, the polymer penetrates the wood structure, dyeing the fibers. Depending on fiber density, the dye saturation appears. So a fantastic hilt pattern appears.
Metal scabbard also has stabilized wood inserts. In addition to the inserts, the scabbard is decorated with relief engraving, jewelry stones and a nickel and gold plating. Pure gold is used for gilding. The blade is made of high-alloy steel. Two fullers are on both sides of the blade making it lighter and giving it additional strength. The surface of the blade is decorated with gold ornaments.
Daga will cause genuine curiosity among collectors of bladed items due to the quality of materials used and the great artistic manual work.
