Knucklebows appear on Messers until 1450 at the latest, however they never become a definitive feature for them. There is plenty of evidence for their presence on both curved and straight, narrow and wide blades alike in a variety of shapes and sizes.
For the Karl’s optional knucklebow, we chose a close-fitting and relatively short version, with a beak-like finial on the long arm. It is made with a combination of hand-forging and grinding.
Just like our basic crosses, it is slid down along the blade and is fixed in place by the widening of the blade and a shell-shaped N2A Nagel peened on the other side.
The knucklebow is exlusively a made- to- order option for the Karl Langes Messer. It means that it will be created specially for you and it can not be sold separately.
We follow the philosophy of design from the past- hardly any weapons were made pristine. They bore signs of swordmaker's tools, hours of filing and hard work which makes for a unique signature of the maker, and their relationship with the weapon they forge. It means that our pieces are unique, and no two weapons are the same.
