Hey folks.. here is my version of a Rondel dagger. Mine has a 11 3/4" blade composed of heavily etched antique wrought iron, scrap band saw blade steel, home made shear steel and W2. The total length is 17 1/4". The guard and pommel are from my usual antique wrought iron stash and the handle is composed of amboyna scales spaced by ironwood. There are also linen braid wraps that are 'stabilized' with a home made pine resin 'shellac'. The blade is very thin and lively... 3/16" at the guard with much distal taper. Hollow ground bevels.

Harmonious colours, textures, detail work plus the natural beauty of the wood grain reinforcing the beauty of the blade pattern welding. Big Grin Cool

Real fine arts shown here beyond " just " weapon making arts that are also very impressive in themselves.

I really appreciate the comments.

I NEED to take better pictures because these are failing to show the nice iron texture in the front of the guard.... as well as the nice, thin side profile. This might be a bit more delicate than the actual weapons... but I believe that the W2 core would suffice for good penetration... :-)

When you're done, could you bring me a shovel so that I can do likewise?

Gorgeous work, sir.

Wow, that is absolutely stunning! I have to third the "jaw on the floor" notion!
