Some time ago, there was a Rondel spotlight by Alexi Goranov (http://www.myArmoury.com/feature_spot_rondel.html) that really made me look at the longer rondel daggers. I ended up ordering two, one from Justin King that has been discussed here http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=7703&highlight= and one from Arms and Armor. Craig just sent me a couple of picks of the finished A&A piece. It is to be shipped today!

Just wanted to share...

Gordon

The inspirations for the dagger, by the way, were from the spotlight article:

Very nice! Every time I see a rondel dagger done that nicely, it makes me more and more interested in them.

FANTASTIC!! If you're not home when the delivery man comes, just leave him a note and have him send the rondel to my house and I'll take real good care of it. I'm just thinking of you man. I wouldn't want your daughters to get hurt opening up the package without adult supervision Big Grin Congratulations.
