Medieval English Knights Rondel Dagger 14thC TC89
14thC rondel dagger
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 and hollow top and bottom rondels with repousse decoration.
A low to middle status soldier, knight or archers dagger with fabricated hollow rondels so it won’t overbalance and a strong single edged blade with a reinforced point.
Steel brazed rondels, wooden grip, thick carbon steel blade. Veg tan leather sheath.
