Chad, are those rondels on the rondel dagger really made of wood? Is it some sort of burly wood? Thanks for the great pics.

Risto,
They are wood, with thin plates of brass sandwiching them in. Sandwiches of wood and metal weren't uncommon, actually. What we see most often are rondel daggers with a single metal disc at each end of a wooden grip. But, there are a number of ones with metal grips and some with wooden grips and sandwiches of wood and/or different metals.

As for the kind of wood, I'm not sure.

There are more pics of it in the albums, though they aren't the best (museum lighting is generally bad for picture-taking as is shooting through glass).

Here's one of the hilt: http://www.myArmoury.com/albums/photo/12769.html

Gordon,
Thanks for the kind words. It's a nice museum and worth a visit of you're in this neck of the woods. I think later-period lovers like you might enjoy it even more than I did.

If you do make it out this way, let me know. I'll buy you a frosty, frothy beverage. Happy

One more reason to hit Cin City, et al! Plus there's the scrapple, or what ever that cool stuff is... Eek!

The Frazier report was very nice, good photo's too. The review of the Mortuary was a welcome one too, I've been thinking of buying the antiqued version as a room-deco piece.

Does the Museum in Eden Park still have the Armor & Weapons exhibit? I'm originally from Cincy but haven't been back in almost 30 years.

Dave,
I've been there once, and they had a very little bit, mostly polearms.

Thats so sad. I remember them having a really good medieval weapons section that included swords, halberds, armor and polearms. A lot of it was Italian and French, if memory serves. But, as I said, that was a looong time ago.
