Hickory Roundel Dagger

Home of the original! We 're-invented' this back in 2000 and have shipped them all over the world. This wooden training dagger, also called a rondel, 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.

by Guy Windsor

In Mastering the Art of Arms, Volume One: The Medieval Dagger, Guy Windsor presents a complete guide to the principles and practice of Italian dagger combat, as set down in Il Fior di Battaglia
a manuscript written in 1410. Readers are guided step-by-step through the process of mastering this six hundred year old art, from choosing a dagger to striking with it; from guard positions to steps and turns; from disarms to locks and takedowns; from safe falling practice to formal drills, and finally pressure testing their skills with sparring.

Type III Synthetic Long Dagger

Many of today's competitive Historical European Martial Arts groups (HEMA) rely on synthetic wasters as an integral part of their total training spectrum. These synthetic wasters are suitable for most drills, sparring, and free fencing with appropriate protective gear for hands, head, and body. Every training tool is a compromise between shape, weight, cost, and performance. With the right material and careful distal tapering, Purpleheart's Type III wasters provide an excellent combination of these qualities. The blade flexes well in the thrust even in highly competitive environments. This means a greater margin of safety for your fencing partner. The blade flexes quickly and retains enough stiffness to permit dynamic and vigorous fencing actions with a minimum of unrealistic blade whipping. At the same time, the blade thickness helps distribute impact force compared to steel blade edges, making for a slightly safer training alternative. Purpleheart Type III synthetic blade durability is unrivaled. These training tools can stand up to years of daily, high impact training.They do not develop splinters like wood, or sawtooth notches like steel. For best performance, store them as you would a steel sword when your equipment is not in use: in a cool, dry environment and resting flat or hanging by the crossguard. Heat, humidity, and resting a weight on top can all cause the blade to bend and take an undesired set. Treat it well, and this tool will serve you for years with almost no maintenance.
