Description:- The rondel dagger gets its name from its round (or similarly shaped, e.g. octagonal) hand guard and round or spherical pommel. Rondel means round or circular. Rondel daggers were principally designed for use with a stabbing action, either underarm, or over arm with a reverse grip. They were ideal in battle for puncturing chain mail. They would also have been used for cutting. During the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the rondel dagger was a knight's back-up weapon to be used in hand to hand fighting, and as such, one of their last lines of defense. The Primus range represents the pinnacle of Deepeeka quality historical replicas. Each item of this signature line is developed from original design patterns in consultation with the museum staff who have direct access to the original pieces. Additional production development is done with assistance from American and European experts in the field. Only then are these pieces painstakingly created by the finest of Deepeeka’s skilled craftsman. Final quality control is double checked to insure the strictest adherence to even the slightest of details. Deepeeka Exports is extremely proud and pleased to offer the Primus line as the culmination of years of continuing dedication to quality and historical accuracy in these fine products.
Historical Period:- In a scene from a miniature by Girart de Roussillon depicting the construction of twelve churches in France (c. 1448), merchants and tradesmen can be seen wearing rondel daggers at their waists.
Inspiration:- This dagger is based on an original that currently resides in the collection of the museum in The Royal Armouries Leeds, UK.
