Buyer's Guide

Choosing a daggers Handle

A Dagger handle, also called a Butterfly blade, is a common clue often found in card games like Crossword puzzles and/or other word games that use a dictionary to provide words. Often, the word used for this type of clue (a word which is usually one of the main words in the puzzle) is not the actual word used by the puzzle's answer. In this way, it is often "hidden" within the correct meaning of the puzzle. A popular example of this is the substitution of "head" for "heart" in a puzzle such as "The Strap". The substitution of a normal word with an extra letter (like "head" for "heart") can give rise to a brand new clue.

A more popular version of this is to use the blade of a knife as the handle. A variation is to place a small blade (or blade - often made of wood) into the handle of the knife. A small blade can then be put through the holes of the handle of the knife in such a way that the end result looks like the end part of a knife, but is in fact a knife handled by means of a hinge. Some clever players have taken this further and created a game in which the "blade" is a switch, and that the player (the player who has placed the switch in the correct location) must find the switch in order to activate the hidden blade.

However, one problem with this type of handle is that, if you find the switch while your opponent is halfway through their turn, you will gain access to their blade, meaning that the game may be turn-based (whereas if you controlled your opponent, then you would gain access to their handle). In addition, since it is only accessible via a straight motion, and not via a back or an up motion, this type of handle is often unable to provide much assistance to the position of the hidden blade. This means that, while a traditional handle allows for a much more fluid game play, it also limits some of the strategic options that you have when playing. It is thus often more appropriate to go for a two-handed dagger handle.

The next most popular style of handle is the flick knife handle. The advantage of this style is that it is extremely simple. You simply flip open the blade, flick it out in place, and then close it back in. The disadvantage is that you are forced to have at least one of your hands free (if not both) in order to use this handle. This leaves you unable to perform other actions, or even to wield a weapon normally. As such, this particular style of handle is typically only used for games where you will already have a free hand.

One of the most popular designs for a dagger handle is that of the hooked blade. In games in which you control a large number of units, and need to maneuver them around the battlefield in order to win the game, this is usually the preferred design. The hooked blade allows you to easily move units from one area to another, and is useful as you can easily make use of them as units in combat. In this way, you can easily change up your strategies on the fly, and adjust your fighting tactics accordingly. The only real problem with this handle is that you will need both hands free to wield it, and can't use the blade normally while in use.

Another handle design that is quite popular is the hooked claw blade. This type of handle makes use of a hook attached to a long metal bar that extends from the handle itself, allowing you to hang it over your shoulder. This extension prevents the blade from impacting any surface when you are swinging it, and can be used to great effect in melee combat. Claw blades are also commonly used in fencing weapons, as they can be used to great effect against heavier opponents.

Finally, you have the double handled blade type. This is essentially just a single handle applied in a different configuration. This handle is often times made from two pieces of metal, such as steel or bronze, with a hinge on the front edge. This provides you with an additional grip, and allows you to switch it up based upon the situation. Generally speaking, the double handled blade is most popular with close range attacks, and is not practical for extending a long blade at a distance.

As you can see, there are many different handle types available to choose from when buying a dagger. The type of handle you end up choosing will largely be based upon your style, and the weapon in question. The handle will play a major role in your weapon's appearance, as well as its functionality. Take some time to think about which handle would best suit your weapon before making your purchase.
