Cold Steel®'s Rondel Dagger is inspired by historical examples of the combative incarnation of this medieval dagger. Rather than a multi-purpose tool, this version was a specialized weapon, a side arm developed for in-fighting, to pierce mail or heavy clothing and to slip through gaps in plate armor.
The long, straight triple-edged and hollow-ground blade is incredibly stiff and terminates in a needle-sharp point. The blade is richly blued and the edges hand-polished, giving the rondel its handsome appearance. The handle of the rondel dagger is turned and intricately hand-carved from Malaysian sal wood, with brass pins added to give further decoration and more traction to the grip. The period-correct double dish guard and pommel are further embellished with file work and offer incredible hand protection.
An historically accurate hand-stitched leather sheath with blued steel throat and chape allows the rondel dagger to be tied to a belt or baldric and comfortably worn in a variety of positions.
This dagger is perfect for Historical European Martial Arts practitioners who are studying the treatise or manuscripts on rondel application, or a fine addition to the collection of a historical reenactor or weapons enthusiast.
