A side arm developed for in-fighting, to pierce mail or heavy clothing, and to slip through gaps in plate armor. The long, straight triple-edged and hollow ground blade is incredibly stiff and terminates in a needle sharp point. The blade is richly blued, then the edges are hand polished, giving the Rondel its handsome appearance. The handle of the Rondel Dagger is turned and intricately hand-carved from Rosewood, with brass pins added to give further decoration and more traction to the grip. The period-correct double dish guard and pommel are further embellished with file work and offer incredible hand protection. An historically accurate hand-stitched leather sheath with blued steel throat and chape allows the Rondel Dagger be tied to a belt or baldric and comfortably worn in a variety of positions.
