**RARE**ANCIENT CIRCA 15TH CENTURY RENAISSANCE RONDEL ETCHED DAGGER BLADE**Re-Fitted In The Victoran Era With Correct Rondel Dagger Form Polished Walnut & White Metal Hilt. ED 2576 - ED 2576
The rondel dagger was a stabbing weapon very popular as a sidearm throughout Europe during the 14th and 15th centuries . While extremely simple in basic design, the rondel dagger has been executed in an amazing variety of ways. Many historical examples of this style of weapon, which features disc-shaped rondels on one or both ends of the hilt, survive today. The discs at the "pommel" and/or "guard" may be solid metal, layers of metal and wood, or some other combination. The blade is seen in a myriad of forms, including single-edged flat or hollow-ground, double-edged, triangular with little or no edge, diamond section and others. This is an excellent original C15th century Rondel blade re hilted to a high quality at some point in its life most likely during the Victorian era when the revival of interest in renaissance era weapons took place. Its original C15th Century flat diamond section blade is clean and crisply etched on both sides with foliate imagery and winged Cherub devices. The blade is 13” length and it measures 18 ½” overall length. It has the correct polished walnut curved disc shaped finger guard found on rondel daggers, this one with stepped white metal simulated flower petal mount on the underside of the guard. It has a turned walnut grip with scalloped white metal ferrules & stepped flower head with petals shaped white metal pommel cap. The price for this rare rondel dagger blade in superb condition for its great age with quality Victorian era mounts includes UK delivery. ED 2576.

SOLD SOLD (16/12) **MINT**2007 GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS, RECORD BREAKER**Massive Wenger ‘Giant’ Swiss Army Multi Blade / Tool Knife (87 Tools 141 Functions) With Later Carry Case. Sn 20334 - 20334
Wenger, known to be the more innovative of the two Swiss Army Knife manufacturers (the other being Victorinox), created this unique Swiss Knife Army that is still considered a marvel of modern Engineering. The Wenger Giant is the largest Swiss Army Knife ever made. It is the only SAK that has the most tools, as it has every tool that Wenger has ever produced for their 85mm Swiss Army Knives. The Giant comprises 87 tools that can perform 141 different functions. The Wenger Giant did feature in the Guinness World Records. Specifically, the Guinness Book Of World Records awarded it the distinction of being the ‘most multifunctional penknife‘. This is what Guinness says about the Wenger Giant: “The most multifunctional penknife is the Swiss Army Giant Knife 2007, manufactured by Wenger S.A. in Delemont, Switzerland, which contains 87 tools and offers 141 different function“. The Giant ended up having 14 blades, three types of pliers, countless screwdrivers, saws, wrenches, and a lot of other tools. Wenger made it available for purchase around 2007, the year it won the Guinness Record. It comes only in standard red-coloured Wenger Branded scales. The Giant is an enormous SAK. Though impressive by design and craftsmanship, the model is so large that it is impractical for any type of actual use. It is not something you can carry with you anywhere, be it in your pocket or in your bag, however, Wenger has made it pretty clear that the Giant was not designed to be a practical knife. It was specifically used for promotional purposes by Wenger, mainly to attract the attention of dealers at trade shows. Our example is in mint condition with all of its original blades and tools including functioning torch & compass. The knife comes in a later alloy carry case with hinged lid, carry handle and clasp fasteners. The case is foam lined to protect the knife. The price for this mint world record breaker includes UK delivery. Sn 20334

It has a clean 8 ¾” single edged blade with fullers. It measures 13 ¼” overall and the hilt is slotted for retaining lug which is mounted on its scabbard. The polished Ray skin bound wood scabbard has brass mounts embossed with prunus blossoms. Each side throat mount has brass hanging rings.
