This unique Rondel dagger is based on an original which was dated to about 1400. The blade is 1050 high carbon steel and it is mounted into a well-detailed hilt of brass. Included is a thick leather sheath with a belt loop.

This Rondel Dagger is based on similar originals - one of which resides in the armory collection of Rome’s Castel Sant’Angelo and the other in the German Historical Museum in Berlin. Immediately apparent with this single-edged dagger is a deliberately widened tip - an innovation that was probably intended to improve its piercing ability by incorporating a wider tip which would serve to make a wide and large wound with even a shallow piercing strike. The blade has a thick ricasso and a thick spine to ensure it is quite rigid - again a development towards improving its thrusting ability. Its single edge would have been capable of delivering substantial cuts as well.

An elegant dagger that showcases the social class of its bearer, such a weapon would look right at home in a prominent position on the belt of a knight, nobleman or well-heeled burgher.
