Adorian is based on several surviving antique Langes Messer from Middle- and Eastern Europe, most notably on an unpublished original knife from Hungary. Several similar pieces have CC1 pommels, although the exact shape is based on a Bauernwehr from the same region.
We put a lot of time and love into the Messer construction and designed a curved, 563mm long blade, hand-ground from 6150 steel. It has a fair amount of distal taper and is sharp on
its entire length. The false edge is sharpened as well, however, due to the angle, it will find the most use in aiding penetration during thrusts. The needle-like tip is subtly reinforced.
The hilt accessories of this long knife are hand-ground from mild steel. The type XV cross is slid up from the
tip and is affixed with a type N2a Nagel. The fuller on the grip extends into both the cross and pommel.
Another stand-out feature of the Adorian is a grip made from Mahaleb Cherry (Prunus Mahaleb), a sturdy and fragrant wood often used in manufacturing luxurious objects such as smoking pipes or walking sticks. It has a flattened, fullered octagonal cross-
section and is affixed by adhesive and fine tubular brass rivets.
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 sharp Messer for cutting and technical drills, perfect for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA).
