The Rondel Dagger was a popular weapon from the late middle ages. The slender blade could be used to penetrate chain mail or slip through the joints in armor, or the eye slots in a helmet. 

This beautiful but deadly weapon is forged from 5160 spring steel into a long and wickedly pointed 10" long triangular blade. The full tang runs through the discs (rondels) of the guard, forged steel grip and pommel, and peened into a copper ferrule. The forged grip is octagonal in section. The rondels of the guard and pommel are decagon copper plates sandwiched between two decagon steel plates. The copper plates are intricately filed as well. The pommel cap is carved as a flower from buckeye burl, and the ferrule and peened tang create the flower's center. All the steel is blued, and the copper is heat-patinaed.

The sheath nicely compliments the blade. It is formed of poplar with raised leather cord accents, which is wrapped in red glove leather and dark red stingray skin, and tipped with a heat-patinaed copper chape. The leather is patinaed to have an aged look. The sheath encompasses the guard as well.

The display stand is forged steel with copper rivets, mounted to a section of Eucalyptus wood.

The knife is 16” long overall and the blade is 10.5’’ long and 1/2” wide. It stands 14” tall on the base.
