This stunning Rondel Dagger from Cold Steel is inspired by historical examples of the combative incarnation of this Medieval dagger. This side arm was developed to pierce mail or even heavy clothing and to slip through gaps in plate armor. The long, straight triple-edged and hollow ground blackened 1065 carbon steel blade is incredibly stiff and terminates in a needle sharp point. The handle is turned and finished from Rosewood, with brass pins added to give further decoration and more traction to the grip. The double dish guard and pommel are further embellished with file work and offer incredible hand protection. A matching leather and blued steel sheath with hanging chape is included, allowing the Rondel Dagger be tied to a belt or baldric and comfortably worn in a variety of positions.
