The Point Is Mightier Than the Edge
The Cold Steel Raven rondel dagger is a perfect example of a weapon designed purely for thrusting: the strong, triangular-cross-section blade has no edges -- only a point that can surely pierce fabric, leather, or mail, and very likely plate of field-harness thickness. It is a thrusting weapon pure and simple; additionally, since it has no edge to dull, it could readily be used as a parrying weapon. Handsome and functional -- what more needs be said?
