English Rondel CIRCA 1420

Rondel daggers were medieval military anti-armour daggers that were often long and heavy:  fine for the battlefield, but less comfortable around court or when you were wearing your finery.  For those moments a smaller, more subtle, but no less lethal knife was appropriate.  

This rondel dagger of 1400-1430, found in the Thames, features a hollow ground blade, twisted barley corn grip in box wood and hollow top and bottom rondels with repousse decoration and wriggle work and based on the X.1 in the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

Blade length 23cm/9"

Grip length 9cm/3.5"

Overall length 34cm/13.5"
