A knife is an instrument that has a sharp blade attached to a handle and is used for cutting. Typically a knife is single-edged, if both edges of the knife blade are sharped, it is usually considered a dagger. Everyone would have worn a knife in period, if only for eating.

In England all knives before the mid-14th century had whittle tangs, but by the early part of the 15th century the scale tang had become the dominant type.

Knives in the SCA

Remember, if you draw steel at an SCA event, you must say "Clear!" to warn others.
