Hypnotic Blade model

Daggers come only in one-handed edged weapon varieties, usually in the form of a short, narrow blade with a short handle or hilt. Some daggers have an edge on one primary side, some have curved blades, but all generally rely on the ability to stab or slash an opponent quickly.

Daggers in World of Warcraft

Daggers are used by several different melee damage dealing classes, but especially rogues. Many rogue skills require that a dagger must be held in the main hand/both hands. They are also used by lighter armored classes such as priests and mages, as daggers are easier to conceal and wield than a sword or an axe. Daggers are trainable by all classes except Paladins, Monks, and Death Knights.
