Rondel daggers are a staple of fencing manuals- they are widely represented, even after their popularity started to dwindle.
There is a huge variation of the rondel daggers, as their size ranges from compact, delicate pieces to weapons that could easily be seen as short swords. It allows for a lot of creative freedom while designing a dagger with this particular style.
Our interpretation is loosely based on antique daggers from the early 16th century. While the first Sigmund design featured a round walnut grip and steel rondels, we felt the aesthetics a bit plain. To make the daggers more alive, we changed to make the new rondels with floral style bronze-casts and went with an octagonal cherry grip. Now Sigmund 2.0 is ready to serve you just as well as the previous iteration!
The blunt blade is hand-ground from 8mm thick 6150 steel with a short ricasso and a subtly hollow-ground cross-section. The tip is left almost at a full thickness in part to simulate the reinforced points of some originals, and in part to ensure that the blade is safe during drills.
The tang is peened over a separate peen block on the upper rondel.
Please be advised; slight variations and differences may occur in the products due to their hand-made nature and the organic materials used.
The products aim to have the aesthetics of historical pieces, not the finish of mass-produced items. Each product bears the signs of its making; small tool marks and imperfections, which do not affect the build quality or usability but give each of our pieces its unique character.
The weapon is a practice dagger for solo practice and technical drills, perfect for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and reenactment.
