Admiral Dagger ─ piercing cold weapon with a short double-edged straight blade. The Russian dagger became widespread at the end of the XVI century, and later it became the traditional weapon of officers of the Russian NAVY. For the first time historians mention the dagger as a personal weapon of Russian naval officers in the biography of Peter I, who liked to wear a naval dagger on a sling. The shape of Russian naval dagger was so exquisite, that the German Kaiser Wilhelm II was so delighted with it, that he ordered to make same style daggers for all of his naval officers. Also, back in the 80s of XIX century. Russian dagger style was borrowed by Japanese that made it look like a little samurai sword.
