Rondel daggers first appear in knightly effigies, brasses and paintings in the early 14th century and as the use of plate armour become more common on the battlefield so did the popularity of the rondel dagger. Period illustrations show soldiers using this style of dagger in an “ice pick” stabbing motion. The long blade of the rondel dagger enabled the penetration of the venerable sections between plate and chainmail and was popular through the 15th and 16th century.
This dagger features a one piece carved hardwood handle and includes a light brown colour leather scabbard with loop to attach to your belt. The tang is peened at the back of the handle.
Total Length of the dagger is 42cm and the Blade measures 29cm. The round handle is 3cm in diameter and the rondel disks are 5cm in diameter.
The dagger has a sharp point which will require rounding if used for historical re-enactment combat.
