"It wasn't the reward that mattered or the recognition you might harvest. It was your depth of commitment, your quality of service, the product of your devotion -- these were the things that counted in a life. When you gave purely, the honor came in the giving, and that was honor enough."

These two daggers are my latest additions.   :)

Kult of Athena came through, once again, and delivered exactly as advertised!

That roundel is interesting. Why does the blade look a bit odd?

KOA's listing is here: Rouelle Dagger

It's made by Lord of Battles (LOB) and they state "The Rouelle Dagger is essentially an embellished Rondel Dagger".  The blade is quadrangular which is difficult to see in my photo.  KOA has much better photos.

It was an impulse buy and I couldn't be happier.  I would be interested to know if anyone could provide concrete evidence for this style of rondel.

It's a rondel stiletto four-sided reproduction.
