This medieval rondel dagger is closely based on a piece in the Rothenburg Collection in Germany and dated around 1450, though I would put it a little later.
A stunning medieval dagger of very high status and imposing form. There is nothing subtle about this dagger at all; if your last moments are looking down the tip of the dagger, there is no question that the man holding it is a better man than you.
The grip is made from a number of cast bronze elements which are gold and silver plated and fitted up to a very strong, very aggressively hollow ground double edged blade. The hollow grinding stops around 40mm/1.5" from the tip, making for a very strong point.
The sheath is constructed from two layers of veg tan leather with a formed and lined cup and the dagger is suspended from a decorative ring at the throat.
