The Bauernwehr is a dagger-sized sidearm with a knifelike hilt construction. Our design takes elements from antique daggers and period illustrations, combining them into something that wouldn't look out of place in the 16th century.
The long, stout blade is ground free-handed from a 6mm thick 6150 steel. It has minimal distal taper to keep the blade presence serviceable. The short false edge is fully sharpened just like the true edge, but due to the thickness of the material, it's main function is to aid penetration.
The bolster protrudes beyond the edge. It's affixed by two rivets ground mostly flush, and by the type N2a Nagel. The Nagel's socket and shaft is square with rounded edges to minimize the chance of it loosening or rotating.
The grip is made from beech and is affixed by tubular brass rivets. The cross-section is a truncated flat oval, broken up with flat surfaces at the edges.
The sheath is hand-sewn from vegetable-tanned leather, and we included quite a bit of variation in them. It's available without any decoration, or with geometric, floral or Totentanz motif with a single silhouette.
To keep the authentic feel and affordable price, we allow some slight variation when it comes to the hilt accessories - it means that no two weapons are the same. They will differ and show marks of hammering, as the antique weapons do. Additionally, in our designs we use organic materials which may vary in texture and hue.
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.
The weapon is a practice Bauernwehr for test cutting and technical drills, perfect for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and reenactment.
