14thC English Rondel dagger

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 hollow ground 25cm blade with a box grip, comes with a leather sheath and bronze chape.
