Non-Raid Transmog Weapons: Daggers

I find it somewhat ironic that only a few of the classes who can use Daggers actually use them for stabbing things. Anyway! There are quite a few interesting looking daggers, some One-Hand, some Main Hand.

And before you ask - Morgion is wearing a plain white dress because I didn't want the small Dagger blades lost against her normal dark leg armor. So it's for visibility's sake.

Non-Raid Daggers

Bangalash's Claw
Required Level: 24
Source: Quest

Purple circle dagger in picture. Very unusual, exotic design. Black-bladed version with orange circle variants: Guile of Khoraazi (One-Hand, requires Exalted with Consortium, base price 199g), Hypnotic Blade (Main Hand, Scarlet Monastery, 45% drop rate). Silver blade, yellow circle: Julie's Dagger (One-Hand, Bind on Equip).
Arachnid Dagger
Required Level: 62
Source: Bind on Equip

This quietly understated dagger has some nice detailing on it, and isn't outrageously huge. Purple blade, as is Phantom Dagger, another BoE green. The orange-bladed version pictured is Shattering Dagger, a Main Hand BoE.
Azure Lightblade
Required Level: 66
Source: Quest (Horde, Alliance)

Main Hand quest reward for killing Durn the Hungerer in Nagrand. Currently the only other way you can obtain this model is from a Molten Core drop.
Balnazzar's Horn
Required Level: 42
Source: Quest

Main Hand reward for killing Balnazzar in Stratholme. Surprisingly detailed and colorful model for a low-level item, and is a unique model, too.
Barman Shanker
Required Level: 51
Source: Blackrock Depths

A very fun dagger variant. Shares a model with the various Direbrew Shankers, but those are near-impossible to farm, and only available during Brewfest.
Black Knight's Rondel
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Trial of the Champion

Large and blunt-looking, but very distintive. 13% drop rate from the Black Knight. Shares a model with some raid drops, but that's it.
Blood Weeper
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Forge of Souls

31% drop rate from Devourer of Souls. Only non-raid Dagger that uses this model.
Ceremonial Warmaul Blood-Blade
Required Level: 65
Source: Quest

Nice and vicious-looking, and the little red sash on the end is a nice touch. Shares a model with a Molten Core drop, but is otherwise unique.
Chilled Heart of the Glacier
Required Level: 80
Source: Halls of Reflection

This unique Main Hand Dagger has a 21% drop rate from the final boss of Normal Halls of Reflection. Would be perfect for a Frost Mage.
Edge of Oppression
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Magister's Terrace

Some nice purple colors and detailing on this Dagger, which has a 25% drop rate. Shares a model/look with Blade of Trapped Knowledge and Ced's Carver, both blue-quality BoEs. Red detailing: Anzac Dagger (One-Hand, Bind on Equip). Yellow detailing: Quest Rewards, Rogue-only (Horde, Alliance)
Elementium Shank
Required Level: 85

Nice purple highlights in this Dagger, which can be made with Cataclysm databases. Shares a model with the orange-detailed Brainsplinter, which can also be made via Blacksmithing.
Flameheart Spell Scalpel
Required Level: 80
Source: Vendor

This sword-sized Main Hand Dagger requires Revered with Kirin Tor, base price 74g. Shares a model with some swords and Keleseth's Blade of Evocation (MH, Utgarde Keep, 31% drop rate), and Netherbreath Spellblade (MH, Horde Quest)
Traditional Flensing Knife
Required Level: 78
Source: Vendors (Various)

This very cool sickle is completely unique, and almost never seen. It requires Revered with the Kalu'ak and has a base price of 72g. Big fan of this one!
The Fleshshaper
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Halls of Stone

A Dagger that is a tooth! Kind of unusual. 20% drop rate, white tooth in the picture. The black tooth is Skoll's Fang, a guaranteed Bind on Equip drop from the rare spawn Skoll in Storm Peaks.
Required Level: 80

Illidari-Bane Mageblade
Required Level: 67
Source: Quest

Purple crystal and massive (for a Dagger), this Main Hand weapon also has an ice-blue One-Hand variant, Illidari-Bane Dagger. Sadly, these Daggers are quest rewards from the same quest, so you can only ever get one or the other. (The purple model is also available as a sword.)
Modgud's Blade
Required Level: 83
Source: Grim Batol

29% drop rate. This unusual forked Dagger shares a model only with...itself. Or rather, the Heroic version of itself, which drops on - obviously - Heroic mode, at a 20% drop rate. The Heroic version is blue instead of yellow.
Blade of Nadox

Source: Old Kingdom

This creepy-looking Dagger has a 33% drop rate and shares a model only with a raid drop out of Ahn'Qiraj.
Namlak's Supernumerary Sticker
Required Level: 80

(Yellow blade) This can be found on the AH every now and then, and usually for reasonable prices. It shares a model with a black-bladed recolor, Unsharpened Ice Razor, which is random Bind-on-Pickup trash drop out of the ICC 5-man Heroics.
Neurosurgeon's Tool

There are quite a few Axes that use this cleaver model, but this is the only Dagger that uses it. It is a Horde quest reward.
Torturing Poker
Required Level: 29
Source: Scarlet Monastery

A red-hot poker! Very cool and full of flavor. 46% drop rate, first boss in SM: Graveyard, so very easily farmed. Has a twin, Flarethorn, which drops from Blackrock Depths at a 24% drop rate. (Just farm it from Scarlet Monastery, seriously.)
Potentate's Letter Opener

This giant blade is very noteworthy in that it shares its design with some One-Hand Swords, but no other Daggers. Main Hand.

Runed Dagger of Solace

    Fantastic list! Some of these I've saved over the years (even long ago, pre-transmog, cos BC gear was so interesting!), but others are true surprises, even after reading other transmog lists. Good job!

    The twinblades are different because of how they're sheathed on your body. Crossed over behind your back.

    The Twinblades appear as swords because the original Twinblades of lvl 60 ZG were in fact swords. The dagger version is the same moddel, only badged as daggers.
