Anelace

[an-l-eys]
An anelace, also called an anlace, is typically regarded as a medieval long dagger. However, some sources treat it as a type of sword. An anelace was sharp on both sides and could be carried at the small of the back or girdle. Two anelaces could be used in a paired fighting style similar to using a sword and parrying dagger. It is known in the city of Verona and the surrounding Veneto region of Italy by the name cinquedea, which translates as "five fingers".
