Rondelldolken (populär modell 1300- 1400) var en vidareutveckling ifrån riddardolken, i och med att plåtrustningen kom så ändrades dolkarna till denna modell för att lättare kunna penetrera rustningar.
The rondel dagger, a late medieval melee weapon, gets its name from the round, disc-like shape of its hand guard as well as from the spherical form of its pommel.
It was often used in combination with a small fist shield, the buckler. The usually slim and tapering blade was yet robust and perfectly designed for puncturing chain mail. It could also be forced between the joints of a plate armour.
This authentic replica of a 15th century rondel dagger, created by Primus Arms, is the reproduction of a museum piece now displayed at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, England.
Its hilt is made of solid wood with steel fittings. Its sturdy scabbard is made of cowhide and features a sewed-on belt loop. The blade is not sharpened.
