 The material of this exhibition embraces four thousand years, from 1800 B.C. till the pieces of today. The daggers came from four continents, countries from America, Africa, Asia and Europe.
The daggers, we presented well illustrates how big can be the richness of form of objects made for the same function. The 113 daggers of the show were chosen from 18 collections.

To give a more complete presentation of our subject, we chose a few knives as well, fighting knives that have a place among daggers, due to their size.
