Made by Ryan Bandics out here in Vegas. He is a good man, a great fighter and an incredible craftsman! Pouch is made by him as well. I am in absolute love with this piece.

Here is the newest addition to my collection:

A very custom rondel dagger named "Rook", made by James G. Elmslie:











I am quite enthralled.

I very much like that! Was it inspired by a particular piece, or is it wholly from your and the makers imagination, based on elements that speak to you personally?

It's based on this rondel dagger in the Lagermuseum in Delft:



(I apologise for linking from the image from that random site, I -do- have a copy of that image, but I have no idea if I'd be allowed to upload and share it)

Now we used the original piece as main inspiration, and worked our way to my custom piece from there.
It is "tainted" with the personal colour scheme of my kit, and to better represent the slightly earlier date of 1485 (Compared to most landsknecht daggers this ornate), we decided to go for a classic wood & leather handle instead.

Hey Chad,

Do you know if the shorter one is based on an original?

They both are.

Have a look at the hands-on reviews.

I got this rondel dagger made by Hanwei, it's a bargain buy for it's quality. It has a pretty good blade with minor detail flaw such as the discs are not very well aligned. The scabbard for this dagger is huge though.
