14thC English Rondel dagger 121

This medieval rondel dagger is based on a river find from the Thames and is now held in a private collection – mid 14thC.  

This comes from the early days of the rondel when the front disc had arrived, but a pommel still formed the end of the grip rather than another disc rondel as came later.

Single edged with 25cm blade and comes with a leather sheath with incised acanthus decoration and bronze chape.  Grip is box wood and studded with small copper nails.
