Just finished a rondel that is based on one I saw in the Royal Armoury at Leeds. The discs are made of iron rings. A wooden spacer is inserted, and the top and bottom plates are riveted in place. I believe that they used this technique to keep the weight down since solid iron discs would make the dagger very top heavy. The blade is W1 and the grip is maple burl. The chape is based on an example from Towton. The trumpted top of the sheath is depicted in art work and other pictures.

Overall length: 21.375" (54.3 cm)
Blade length: 16" (40.6 cm)

As I would expect, very nice work Eric. I like the studs on the pommel disc and especially the wood you used for the handle.

Hello all!

Eric,

For some reason, I find the lines of that rondel especially pleasing. It's very elegant looking.

Nice work!
