Hi everyone!

I'm selling these three recently finished rondel daggers, based on historical examples:
From left-to-right: #1 - DHM Inventory W2853
#2 - All-steel rondel dagger, late 15th C
#3 - Wallace Collection A.726





As all of them were made, using only photos and some basic measurements, they are not replicas in the strict meaning - and I prefer to call them "based on" instead.
Anyway, during my work I've constantly tried to stay as much closer as possible to the images and their measurements.
All blades were made from 65G steel and come unsharpened.
The level of finishing is equivalent to grit #800, but as the final sanding was made on cork belt, the appearance is not clear mirror, but somewhat satin with visible lines from the cork.

# 1 - DHM Inventory W2853
Blade - 65G steel / triangulare cross-section
Guard and pommel - wooden rondels, encased in steel sheet
Grip - bone with spiral grooves and iron studs, arranged in six rows
Scabbard - wooden core (poplar) with leather cover, steel chape

Overall lenght - 410 mm
Blade lenght - 280 mm
Blade width at guard - 24 mm
Blade thickness at guard - 6.1 mm
Mass - 425 gr (w/out the scabbard)
The asking price is 273 Euro (or about 295 USD) + shipping







#2 - All-steel rondel dagger, late 15th C
Blade - 65G steel / diamond cross-section
Guard and pommel - St30 steel
Grip - St30 steel
Scabbard - wooden core (poplar) with leather cover, steel chape

Overall lenght - 308 mm
Blade lenght - 210 mm
Blade width at guard - 19.5 mm
Blade thickness at guard - 6 mm
Mass - 260 gr (w/out the scabbard)
The asking price is 236 Euro (or about 255 USD) + shipping







and #3 - Wallace Collection A.726
Unfortunatelly, the blade of this dagger broke off near the tip during heat-treatment.
After discounting several historical pieces with similar blades, finally I decided to make this "shorter blade" variant of the famous A.726. In order to achieve some good and balanced result I reduced the diameter of the rondels also.
Blade - 65G steel / triangular cross-section with short ricasso and false upper edge
Guard and pommel - St30 steel rondels
Grip - walnut, decorated with a pair of bronze five-leaf flowers and inlaid with vertical brass strips on either side
Scabbard - wooden core (poplar) with leather cover, bronze fittings with silver-soldered copper wire decorations

Overall lenght - 410 mm
Blade lenght - 300 mm
Blade width at guard - 22 mm
Blade thickness at guard - 8 mm
Mass - 420 gr (w/out the scabbard)
The asking price is 323 Euro (or about 350 USD) + shipping










If someone is interested in, please, send me a PM in order to provide some more photos and to discuss further details.
