Just like Messers, Bauernwehrs too come in all shapes and sizes and are able to fulfill several roles because of this. While the archetypal Bauernwehr has a knifelike blade best suited for cutting and a bolster that gets more elaborate as time goes by, several had blades much more optimized for thrusting with minimal or no bolsters.
Our take on these simpler Bauernwehrs has a nearly symmetrical, 207mm long blade hand-ground from 6mm thick 6150 steel. While it is definitely sharp and can handle simple cutting tasks, the cross-section is designed with mainly the thrust in mind.
The Nagel is of type N2b and is decorated with chiseled lines. It goes directly through the wooden grip slabs and is peened on the other side.
The grip slabs are made of Mahaleb cherry and are affixed by gluing and large tubular brass rivets.
The sheath is hand-sewn from vegetable-tanned leather and is decorated with a simple geometric pattern.
Overall length: 319mm
Blade length: 207mm
