Tales of Tolgard
Daggers are often thought of as shorter versions of swords but are unique edged weapons in their own right. After all, like swords, that have the four basic components: a blade, a guard, a hilt, and a pommel. It is in the usage of a dagger, however, where these two weapons differ.
Subtly has never been a term associated with a sword, but it is the defining facets of most daggers. It is very difficult to conceal a sword but a dagger might be hidden anywhere on someone’s body. In fact, with their utility in everyday activities as a tool and even dining, wearing a dagger in plain sight is often acceptable and seen as little threat. The same can not be said for swords.
