This Late 15thC magnificent and massive rondel is based on one in the Germanisches National Museum, Nuremberg, Germany. It is a statement in all ways. It is big, flashy, it is expensive, complicated and it is utterly brutal!
Clearly a knights rondel as the grip would easily accommodate a gauntlet and the blade is powerful enough to prize the turret off of a tank. All steel construction with gilt bronze fretwork panels, red leather spacers behind and the scabbard is in poplar covered in vegtan with fabricated steel fittings.
It would be impossible to not notice you wearing this.
Blade length 32cm/12.5"
Total length 47cm/18.5"
