Dagger Guard —any kind of sheath knife may be called a dagger. A guard of the same
type as this archaeological example is illustrated on a dagger in its sheath on the rear view of
one of the men in the Jacob de Gheyn engravings.
This example was
recovered from Jordan’s Journey, a 17th-century settlement site in
Prince George County near Hopewell, Virginia.
