These early rondel daggers can be seen on effigies and artwork throughout the period.

Later rondel daggers had a top 'disc' style guard as well but early ones had a more normal shaped dagger pommel as seen here.

Grip length 9.5cm/3.75"

Overall 36cm/14"

Edge sharpness

Semi-Sharp is 'butter knife sharp'; it has a very fine flat on the edge

Sharp has been ground to give a reasonable cutting edge, but final honing, if required, is by the customer.

Please note: The colours may vary in tone from the photos here.  Each skin of leather is different and reacts differently to the dye so they may be darker or lighter in tone
