Studded Grip Rondel Dagger ~ Rothenburg (TC58)
This distinctive medieval rondel dagger (TC58) is based on a composite of two German examples from the Rothenburg Collection and is dated between 1425 and 1450.
The large disc guards are steel with a crenelated edge and the grip is wood with steel studs, affording a very secure grip. The blade is 8mm thick and has a sharpened false edge near the guard and steps down to a wickedly sharp point with a flat back.
Comfier to hold than it looks!
Suitable for period 1425-1500.
Overall length 45cm/17.75"
Grip length 10cm/4"
Blade length 34cm/13.25"
Semi-Sharp is 'butter knife sharp'; it has a very fine flat on the edge
