Heavy, meaty, ready for battle. Something that is worthy of a knight. This is a thing of beauty. The pictures don't do it justice. The bluing really sets the look of the contrasting bright corners of the blade. The dark brown handle does the same for the brass studs.
This was the first Cold Steel product that I have purchased and I was impressed. The factory packaging was great and offered excellent protection. The fit and finish is very good.

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?
