Adorian is based on several surviving antique Langes Messer from Middle- and Eastern Europe, most notably on an unpublished original knife from Hungary.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 of ours is based on a Bauernwehr from the same region.
We put a lot of time and love in 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
it's 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 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 tuburlar brass rivets.
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 Messers are the same. They will differ and show marks of hammering, as the antique Messers 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 sharp Messer for cutting and technical drills, perfect for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA).
