    Dirks are daggers as well. According to the limited amount of reading i did it is of Scottish origin and typically wasn't symmetrical in design, blade or otherwise. Sounds like the commonality shared between them all is that they are typically short(ish) and designed for thrusting rather than slashing.

    Thanks to everyone for participating in this thread! I am learning a lot!

    Something based off of the Battle Shark could be awesome. The Battle Shark has an excellent looking handle for a dagger (should hopefully be able to confirm in hand in "2 weeks")

    I'd like to see a smaller Busse dagger, ground on one side only.
    No red needed.

    How about a modified Fairbairn┬ľSykes design? Maybe one with more of a handle?

    I like this idea a lot. I would like to see this happen with the war boar also.

    i 2nd the small persian design with an upswept point.
    however single edge only please. double edge is such a hassle with knife laws.

    I think using the Pork Chop as the base would be great!
    Good handle, fuller...it has it all!


    although the fuller would probably need to be a bit thinner...I'll let Jerry figure it out...

    Nailed it!
    And with a broader 'haft' it can be the basis of the pork chop xl!

    BUT... the Force Multiplier V8 looks cool too! Hopefully the FMV8 is just the first of a run of daggers in 2018.;)

    Why not the shorty Hawkeye dagger. It would be perfect.
