Hi all

Hope you like this.

I pimped a dagger by an unknown maker for a friend.
Took apart the handle cut it up in two parts en blued them.
Made a brass and horn rings to put between the handle parts.
Made a new lower rondel discs from brass and horn.
And made a thin end-cap from brass.
Gilded everything and put it together.

The scabbard its made from a single layer thick leather.
With gilded brass fittings and a horn bead at the end.

Ben

Nice work. Great upgrade. I love the overlay idea on the pommel disk.

Nicely done Ben.

Someone in the forum is looking for pictures of daggers with rondels smaller that the upper what'chamacallit.

The first casualty of battle is bravado, the second is macho.

Very well done - I especially like the brass on the upper rondel - great idea.
Did you have any historical inspiration for this type of ornamentation?

Good work!

Wow, Ben, really amazing work - and very innovative, compared to most modern replicas of rondell- or bollock-daggers, I've seen so far.

Thanks for showing!

Thomas
