This one really grabbed my eye! I love the description XD Of course, I love the dagger too! I really want one like this now! Just for decoration, mind you... ;-D

The celts used to wield a weapon called the Gay Bolge. It was a foot-launched missile (yes, really) with a dozen or more spring-loaded barbs in the head. If it hit your enemy full in the stomach, it would, reportedly, rip him to shreds. A skilled warrior could 'throw' it accurately over a distance of 150 feet. I don't know for sure whether this weapon is just mythological, but I don't think so.

I'd love to see some visualisation of this weapon.

Possibly there was a T-bar on it that would fit snugly between the big and second toes. This might enable accurate, distant foot-launching.

45 Dave Cripps replies: "Assuming this weapon exists I'd like to see it in the flesh as it were. I'll get back to you on that... It wasn't like the old woomera launched spears of the Aborigonals was it?"

What a lovely, dangerous looking dagger. Does the shop have more, or was this the last one? XDD

45 Dave Cripps replies: "You want another one?! That does mean a dangerous midnight raid on the castle, avoiding the guards, various thingies and robbing the evil Lord.....How much?.... "

Looks sufficiently deadly. 2

45 Dave Cripps replies: "Not instantly deadly. You need some fun if you’re an evil Chaotic murderer.... erm...."

The handle’s a bit fat, don’t you think, made for a very large/fat hand? But then wouldn’t the backwards pointing spikes poke the user?

20 Dave Cripps replies: "Perhaps not a precision instrument. No the spikes are meant to saw or pluck at the victims skin/innards. Would be a little painful when withdrawing it from the wound. It’s an evil knife. I always though the handle was a little short. A little fat handed evil user perhaps? "
