Stiletto daggers originated in northern Italy, but they were very popular throughout Europe during the entire Renaissance era. Renaissance assassins loved to used stilettos because they effectively sliced through the heavy clothing that people wore at that time.
The pointed, triangular blade also fits neatly through plate armor, and a knight would use a misericorde (mercy) to finish off a floundering opponent as required. From the blade to the handsomely rounded grip and pear-shaped pommel, our misericorde is made of steel. A short, rounded crossguard adds the finishing touch. The mount and chape of the leather scabbard included are also made of steel.
