Cold Steel Grosse Messer sword is 42 1/4" overall with a 32" 1055 carbon steel hand forged blade and a blued steel guard and pommel.
It has rosewood handles, full tang and a leather covered wood scabbard with blued steel tip and throat.
Known throughout Germany as the "big knife", the grosse messer hails from Central and Northern Europe where, in far off days of old, noblemen and peasants alike relied on it to protect hearth and home from the ravages of brigands, cut throats, outlaws, and other assorted characters of ill repute.
Due to its stout, wide blade and generousely sized handle, it could be wielded in one or both hands and was capable of shearing through chain mail or cutting a man in half with a single stroke.
Our version of this elegantly simple yet remarkably effective weapon sports a hand forged blade of 1050 high carbon steel that´s so sharp we have used it to split a telephone book in half, in a single blow!
The guard and heavy pommel are made from blued steel and feature rosewood handle scales riveted to the sword´s full tang.
For convenience and safety, the grosse messer comes with a strong, handsome scabbard crafted from wood and covered with black leather and it is reinforced with a steel chape and throat that has been blued to match the guard and pommel
