Just finished and ready for TORM market this weekend.

This medieval rondel dagger is closely based on a piece in the Rothenburg Collection in Germany and dated around 1450, though I would put it a little later.

A stunning medieval dagger of very high status and imposing form. There is nothing subtle about this dagger at all; if your last moments are looking down the tip of the dagger, there is no question that the man holding it is a better man than you.
The grip is made from a number of cast bronze elements which are gold and silver plated and fitted up to a very strong, very aggressively hollow ground double edged blade. The hollow grinding stops around 40mm/1.5" from the tip, making for a very strong point.

The sheath is constructed from two layers of veg tan leather with a formed and lined cup and the dagger is suspended from a decorative ring at the throat.

Inscription reads ME FIE AN TOI ESPOIR EN DIEU "in you I trust - in God I believe

Blade length 33cm/13"
Overall length 48cm/19"
Grip length 10cm/4"

I hope you like it and if you have any questions or comments please ask away.

That is so fine, I am at a loss for words. Only the photos do it justice. BTW, the town of Rothenberg ob der Tauber, presumably that's the one Tod refers to, is a Bavarian jewel. A medieval walled town with neat old streets and a Glockenspiel. I stayed there, far too many years ago.

Glorious! This is one of those reproductions that I think will look better once it's aged a bit too. Whoever is getting that sure is lucky.
