Our Half Clam Dagger Guard is made completely from 4130 carbon steel. This guard features slightly curved quillions with a dished half clam shell to cover the knuckles. While we don’t offer much customization to this guard we do offer 3 different finishes: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin metal finish. “Blued”, a heat blued finish. Naturally darker, more durable and rust prohibitive than chemical bluing. Finally, “Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish that provides the best rust resistance and detail preservation.
We designed this dagger guard to be a great simulator of the half Clamshell style dagger guards that were popular as off-hand offensive/defensive parrying devices in the late 16th and 17th centuries.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Dagger Blade and our Main Gauche Blade.
