TAZA MAIN GAUCHE (SH2137) by CAS Hanwei
The Taza Main Gauche features a pierced guard and pommel in the same design as the Taza rapier SH2035), with a fileworked blade in the Spanish style. A leather scabbard and belt frog are included.
The Main Gauche, or left hand dagger, was often used with the rapier, providing an added dimension in both offense and defense, and the “Schools of Fence” which proliferated in Europe during this period taught the use of the two weapons in combination. The Main Gauche would often match the Rapier in styling, while incorporating features which maximized the effectiveness of the piece. Replacement blades, both live and blunt (for sparring), are available for most of the Rapiers and Main Gauches.
The Taza Main Gauche features a blade of high quality, strength, and
temper, and is fully functional. See model SH2035 Taza Rapier for the perfect complement to this version of Main Gauche.
