This version came with help from Ken Dietiker (Seven Swords Guild, Takoma, WA). He wanted larger roundels than our standard design to enables greater hand protection and better blade entrapment on the guard.

Its 100% American made from strong oak.



Features
Home of the original! We 're-invented' this back in 2000 and have shipped them all over the world. This is the original roundel dagger as 're-discovered' by us. I was looking at the manuals and got the idea of such a simple design. This wooden training dagger, also called a roundel, with a rounded ball tip for extra safety, is show in the Meyer plates and mentioned in other manuals. This is the same type weapon used by armoured fighters as shown in Fiore. The long strong point can get between joints in armour. It can also be used as a backup weapon to a Shortsword.

Wider roundel guard helps with blade entrapment.

I ordered 4 Large Roundels some months ago.  Students demanded more! Ordered another 4 to shut them up.  Best Wooden Roundel available...our humble Salle's opinion!

Good deal! July 17, 2012

My study group uses these.  After putting them through the paces, we've concluded that they're exactly what we're after.  This is one-piece construction and there aren't really any cons to speak of.  A more complete review by me can be found at the Sword Buyer's Guide:  http://forum.sword-buyers-guide.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12135

In conclusion:  If you want a wooden dagger trainer, go for this one!
