"Wayward Knight" Dagger and Sheath
Stainless dagger with leather sheath
“Wayward Knight” Dagger and Sheath Set
Stainless dagger with leather covered stainless sheath
This piece will look perfect with any XIV-XV century garb, although it is a generic enough design to look great with any medieval costume. Both the dagger and the sheath are simple and elegant, and although they are well constructed and beautiful, they are still quite basic. This means that they could be used for a variety of different characters – though merchants and knights spring to mind as the obvious choice.
The type of dagger in this set is a rondel dagger, which was a very common type of dagger in the XV century. Often associated with knights, they were perfect for close combat. This was not the kind of dagger for cutting and slashing at enemies. Instead, it would be used to take advantage of the unarmored weak spots, especially tender places such as joints that were not protected. The tapered point made it excellent for getting into such places, and the shape of the rondel meant that a lot of pressure could be applied on the dagger to swiftly cripple opponents.
The dagger is made from hollow 1.5mm stainless steel and is purely decorative. Though the point of an actual rondel dagger would be thin and sharp like a needle, the point of this dagger is attractively rounded off to make sure it’s safe and not likely to harm anyone. The edges are also unsharpened, meaning it cannot easily cut, and cannot be sharpened to create an edge. Once this dagger is in your hands, it is your responsibility! ArmStreet will not be responsible for any people or property who might be harmed, so make sure you use it with care even though it’s not a functional weapon.
The handle of this dagger feels beautiful in your hand. It is wrapped in brass wire that brings just enough contrast to the dagger to keep it from being too plain. The rust-resistant stainless steel gives the blade an eye-catching shine. The pommel of the dagger, which gently shapes itself into a beautiful hexagonal shape, compliments the hexagonal rondel to create a visually interesting piece without it being ostentatious.
The dagger and the sheath were made together - the dagger fits perfectly into the metal core of the sheath with satisfying precision. The stainless steel core is wrapped in supple leather, stitched up along the back of it so that the exposed stitching is hidden when viewing it from the front. A weathered brass panel at the top is complemented by simple laser cut quatrefoil shapes that add just a little bit of decoration to the otherwise plain scabbard. It attaches to your belt via small chains with hooks. Together, the dagger and sheath create a fantastic finishing touch for any costume.

The dagger seemed to feel good quality and I have two complaints, one is obvious from the picture. The handle felt to heavy for the blade and I think one thing that had to do with that is it being to big and also the blade was empty. I was messing around with it throwing it into the dirty and the dirty was pretty soft because it rained and I noticed it got a bend so I tried bending it back then it broke, I realized that he dagger had its blade welded onto the hilt and I probably won’t buy anymore swords or weapons from here again unless you make them properly and give them a real thang. I am mostly disappointed because it felt good and how much it was but it broke really fast. I hope this will help you make better weapons. -Elijah
