    Does anyone here fight with daggers? I have a friend who loves daggers so I'm making him a pair of fighting daggers.

    I have a plain dirk(which i love) and a cheapy fake gilded dagger. But I have no one to spar with, and they are sharp anyways.

    At Schola St George, we're learning Fiore dei Liberi's dagger techniques from 1409. It's mostly grappling actually.

    I have not fought with daggers as of yet, but I use throwing knives.
    I would love to learn to fight with them, I am pretty good at throwing them so need a new skill to use them for.

    I dont do dagger fighting but I do do knife fighting.
    Not that there is really any difference you jsut have on less edge to work with when cutting.
