๐Ÿ—ก๏ธ Dagger

A pointed knife with a steel blade, as used for thrusting in close combat. Generally depicted as double-edged with a brown or black, cross-shaped hilt and positioned at 45° angle, often with its tip at the lower left.

May represent knives and other bladed weapons (cf. โš”๏ธ Crossed Swords) as well as various senses of cutting and stabbing. Often applied to medieval or fantasy content.

Microsoft’s design features a golden handle. Google’s design, featuring an icy-blue blade and sparkles, suggests a dagger elves may wield in fantasy.

May be paired with (or defended by) ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Shield. Not to be confused with ๐Ÿ”ช Kitchen Knife.

Dagger was approved as part of Unicode 7.0 in 2014 under the name โ€œDagger Knifeโ€ and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
