This beautiful little dagger is a part of our new “Wayward Knight” collection and will look handsome next to your armor or tucked amongst your feasting finery. It is versatile, simple, and a great addition to any generic medieval costume, or anything based on the XIV-XV centuries.
This style dagger is called a “rondel dagger”. First used in the XIV century, they were very common in the XV century and beyond. Characterized by their long, thin blade, they were usually incredibly sharp at the point like a needle. The blade itself was often quite stiff, and though some historical examples were sharpened to have a cutting edge, they were more commonly considered stabbing weapons.
A number of different types of people and characters may have used a rondel dagger. They were common across a number of different social classes and were used as tools as much as they were weapons. They were particularly useful on the battlefield for penetrating joints and taking advantage of unarmored spots of foes. They were called rondel daggers because of the round shape on the guard, which would protect your hand and allow you to put considerable force into your stabbing motions.
This particular dagger, though, won’t be doing any stabbing, as it’s purely decorative. It looks utterly stunning and is sleek, elegant and comfortable in the hand. The grip of the dagger is wrapped in a stunning twisted brass wire that visually gives the dagger a bit of contrast without compromising the simplicity. A hexagonal rondel protects your hand, and the same shape is carried through as the handle tapers into a handsome pommel.
The dagger is made from hollow 1.5mm stainless steel, and cannot be sharpened or made functional because of this. It will look fantastic in a photo shoot or as a display item, but do keep in mind that there is no way to turn this into an actual dagger! Please do not attempt to cut anything or stab anyone, and be mindful of other people and property when carrying this. Once this dagger is in your possession, it is your responsibility, and ArmStreet will not be responsible for any damage caused.
