Just like Messers, Bauernwehrs also come in all shapes and sizes and are able to fulfill several roles because of this. This model is rather close to the archetypal form with its large, choppy, and clipped blade.

The 300mm long, slightly widening blade is hand-ground from 6mm thick 6150 steel and has a sharpened false edge. The shape of the walnut grip is based on several surviving antique Bauernwehren, widening and thickening towards the end to aid weapon retention while being rather slender close to the blade to maximize the precision of use. The mild steel bolsters are secured with a pair of rivets ground flush and a properly peened N2a Nagel.

The sheath is hand-sewn from the luxurious half-tan leather, making it extremely sturdy and resilient. We decorated it with a single Totentanz figure surrounded by floral motifs. The very end of the sheath has a geometric decoration.

Please be advised; slight variations and differences may occur in the products due to their hand-made nature and the organic materials used.

The products aim to have the aesthetics of historical pieces, not the finish of mass-produced items. Each product bears the signs of its making; small tool marks and imperfections, which do not affect the build quality or usability but give each of our pieces its unique character.


The weapon is a practice Bauernwehr for test cutting and technical drills, perfect for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and reenactment.
