A relatively high-quality dagger that shines in a radiant white hue. Platinum is a material favored for weapon-making, as it can survive prolonged use without suffering any significant damage or deterioration. It is for this reason that this dagger is popular with so many people. Some leaders of bandit groups and other experienced thieves even give their own platinum daggers to their subordinates as a symbol of their graduation to a higher rank within the group.
Platinum is a chemical element with the chemical symbol Pt and an atomic number of 78. Its name is derived from the Spanish term platina, which is literally translated into "little silver".
