Just like Messers, Bauernwehrs also 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.
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.
