Holy Roman Emperor and
German King Maximilian I, 1459-1519, loved both arms and armor.
The Maximilian Dagger is
an example of King Maximilian's actual designs for arms. He
also never held back from a good fight. In 1479, King Louis
invaded Burgundy and the Netherlands region and was met by Emperor
Maximilian. In a short battle, the French Calvary defeated the
Imperial Horse, but in the end the field was held by the infantry
led my the Emperor and King Maximilian fighting on foot with
his men. This beautiful dagger with central fullers is not only
great looking, but it feels great to hold as well.
