Inspired by historical examples of the medieval dagger, the Rosewood Rondel Dagger is a specialized weapon rather than a utility blade. The rondel dagger serves as a side arm for piercing chainmail or slipping through gaps in plate armor. The long, straight, triple-edge and hollow ground blade is incredibly stiff and terminates in a needle-sharp point. The steel blade is richly blued with hand-polished edges to finish the striking appearance. The handle of this functional dagger is turned and hand-carved from rosewood with brass pins for decoration and improved grip traction. The period-accurate double dish guard and pommel feature further embellishment with file work, providing excellent hand protection. The knight dagger comes with a hand-stitched leather sheath with a blued steel throat and chape that lets the design easily tie to a belt or baldric. This medieval blade is ideal for HEMA practitioners, historical re-enactors, and collectors.
