This makes the standard dagger attack arced as opposed to a direct point to target stab. It's only attack angle that works well is attacking opponents behind you. It's unnatural otherwise for even the most common attacks with daggers because you cannot direct the point to the target without arcing.

Maybe it's just me.
Yeah, the ring is kinda goofy.... I haven't seen one in person, but is the handle long enough to take off the ring completely, or would that make it too short?
