A dagger is a short, two-sided blade used for stabbing and thrusting. They are not as long as a short sword, but are larger than a common knife. Daggers are also easily thrown as improvised ranged weapons and are excellent for use in an off-hand for those who prefer dual-wielding melee weapons. Daggers are also sometimes used as implements by sorcerers[2][3] and cost 2 gp.
