A triple-bladed left hand dagger, Italy, ca century. (I believe this was also called a "weapon breaker").

The Tuck Sword due to having a short strong blade was an ideal close quarter weapon that could withstand the rigours of combat. It's compact size meant it was easy to wear and would not get in the way when using a musket or pike. Good hand protection was afforded with the addition of protective bars. As well as being a popular sword with military men, short Tuck Swords were also favoured by civilians, being especially useful for self-defence when travelling or hunting.
