Get ready for comments like "Now that's a knife" when you pull out this bad boy to eat with at the next feast. It comes complete with a pricker to hold the object steady. The pricker is also a dangerous weapon in it's own right.
Full tang multi-use dagger for the medieval re-enactor. Could be used in combat after dulling the point or can be used domestically when the edge is sharpened..
This dagger has a 5mm false (back) edge and 0.5~1.5mm blade edge. (variations do occur so please specify you need)
This dagger features a circular brass guard & pommel, leather grip and full tang blade that is peened through the pommel. It also includes a leather sheath with belt loop.
The straight blade would not have lent itself to a slashing or sabre action. Rondel daggers were ideal in battle for puncturing chain mail, and although they would not have been able to punch through plate armour, they could be forced between the joints in a suit of armour and helmets. This was often the only way in which a heavily armoured knight could be killed.
Size rondel blade: 305 mm (12")
Size rondel overall: 425 mm (16.8")
