Extrema Ratio brings the highest caliber of quality to these “Pugio” knifes. The pugio (Plural: Pugiones) was a dagger used by Roman soldiers as a sidearm. The pugio was intended as an auxiliary weapon, but its exact purpose to the soldier remains unknown. Attempts to identify it as a utility knife are misguided as the form of the pugio is not suited to this purpose and in any case utility knives of a variety of sizes are common finds on Roman military sites, meaning there would be no need for a pugio to be used in this way. Officials of the empire took to wearing daggers in the performance of their offices, and some would wear concealed daggers as a defense against contingencies. The dagger was a common weapon of assassination and suicide; for example, the conspirators who stabbed Julius Caesar used pugiones. Fairbain-Sykes obviously copied this dagger; made it longer, put hilt guards on it, and it is now portrayed as his creation. Not.
Alex believes you need to have an 8 inch freaking blade on a knife to call it a dagger. Hey Alex.. your descending aorta lies in front of your spine; all we need to do is go in on either side of your belly button and sweep toward the middle and nick the descending aorta.. like 3 inches in. Even if your fat I can shove this in far enough and sweep with a three inch blade (this blade is 4.25″ long) nicking same. What good is a nick? This massive aorta supplies all the blood to your guts and lower half of your body; imagine a garden hose.. turn it on off on off on.. every time your heart beats that little nick is under pressure and blows arterial blood everywhere. Heart beat, voluminous spray, break, heart beat voluminous spray, break. You’re done.
