Dudgeon Dagger
Time Period: 16th-17th century
Location: England
Common Construction: Wooden hilt, steel blade
In Britain, the ballock dagger evolved into what is known as the dudgeon dagger, named for the material that the hilt was typically made out of, a boxwood called dudgeon. The shape of the hilt remained similar to that of the ballock dagger, featuring the round bulbs and cylindrical grip. However, dudgeon dagger blades are almost all double edged with a thick diamond or hollow ground cross section. Significantly more effort was put into customizing the blades, including etching and the adornment of crests and other artistic touches.
