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. We offer the blade with 3 options: sharp, thin blunt and thick blunt. The sharp is self-explanatory, with the thin blunt approximating the sharp's handling closely. The thick blunt is also reasonably close 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.
