This modern take on a classic design from the late Medieval era is modernized by Cold Steel for tactical use. The modern warrior’s battlefield kit is including more armor in addition to increasing amounts of gear and tools. In a close-combat situation the usefulness of a of a dedicated piercing weapon becomes apparent when facing a foe who cannot be easily cut through all their layers of gear and armor. When in a close-combat scrum and wrestling in armor for a superior position, the knightly warrior needed a weapon that could pierce the defenses of the foe efficiently when the opportunity to strike arose. In such similar modern situations this age old design functions every bit as well for this purpose.

The blade of the Tactical Rondel is crafted from high carbon steel and tempered for stiffness to optimize penetrative ability. Its hollow-ground fullers with honed edges reduce weight and decrease drag when thrust into a target and they terminate together into a needle-like point. The disc-like rondels which form the guard and pommel not only protect the hand, but they encase the hand on both sides and serve to brace the hand against the dagger to minimize sliding and maximize force when striking. Additionally, the off-hand can easily palm and press against the pommel to further drive the dagger into its target.

The grip is blackened wood and included with the dagger is a thick leather sheath complete with a blackened steel tip, belt loop and a buttoned retention strap.
