A great idea but shy of a wonder, the Great Dagger is perhaps one of the most ingeniously economical items ever produced. It appears to be naught more than an ordinary dagger, save for the large, red stone for a pommel. However, when one strikes with it, it is magically transformed into a two-handed sword. It hides well, and is light on the belt, but no more dangerous that an ordinary two-handed sword (which, of course, is in no way feeble). A simple, and yet surprising and powerful weapon.
According to Vetron's Guide to Weapons and Armour, the Great Dagger has an effectiveness rating of 11 (same as a two-handed sword).
In the Britannia of Ultima VII, one can be found at the Shrine of Sacrifice, Kreg at Empath Abbey uses another, and there is one in the armoury in Serpent's Hold. There is also one on the table at Dell's store in Trinsic, easily accessible to the Avatar shortly after starting Ultima 7.
- They can also be found on the Serpent Isle.
