History & Background (Dossier)
The earliest knives tend to fashioned from animal horns or bones should a world possess both a sophont and sophisticated animal life or equivalent creatures. Other sophonts construct knives from volcanic substances including obsidian. During the TL:1-3 epoch, sophonts generally transition from organic materials to various kinds of shaped and smelted metals. 
The TL-1 dagger represented in this AAB article is a relatively unsophisticated knife forged by a blacksmith in a smithy of softer metals although harder irons may be used and more sophisticated alloys are generally beyond the reach of the typical TL-1 society.
