One of our most popular Langes Messer, Günther is a type M3D Messer with a wide blade, type XV cross, N5B Nagel and a pommel-less grip in the shape of a CC1 pommel. 

The blade is ground freehand from a blank of 6150/51crv4 steel. It's a rather robust weapon, with the most blade presence of our current Messers. It's a perfect choice for fencers, who like to face in the bind (close distance).

We offer the blade in 3 options: sharp, thin blunt and thick blunt. The sharp is perfect for cutting tests and solo drills, the thin blunt closely approximates the handling of a sharp blade. The thick blunt blade is also reasonably close to a sharp Messer in handling, but the extra material does alter weight distribution. We recommend the thin blunts if the main goal is having a trainging weapon as close to a sharp as possible in handling, while the thick blunt is more suitable for hard sparring. The thin blunt's edge is rather delicate, at around 1.2mm-1.5mm, which should be considered before placing an order.

The hilt accessories are also ground freehand from mild steel. We are letting some variance happen in the hilt accessories - this helps keeping the price manageable and the appearance authentic at the same time. The Nagel is a separate piece peened on the other side of the quillon block, as it should be. The quillons are slid downwards from the tip with the blade protruding in the bottom. Depending on the exact quillons we made, this protrusion may be ground flat or may be peened as seen on several originals. This seemingly strange direction of assembly is present on several original pieces. Another feature taken from historical pieces is the quillon block expanding a bit onto the grip.

The handmade grip slabs are affixed by gluing and a row of peened tubular 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 Messer for sparring and technical drills, perfect for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA).
