Arma Bohemia All-Metal Rondel Dagger
Original: German, circa 1400
This rondel dagger
is made entirely of steel. The blade has a wide square-sectioned ricasso with two fullers that transition into the long, tapering diamond-sectioned blade. The steel grip is decorated with incised lines, making for an attractive presentation and a secure gripping surface. The rondels each feature cut-outs along their edges.
The dark red leather scabbard is wood-cored and has a metal throat and chape. A single ring acts as the attachment point and creates a perfect suspension angle.
