No leather blade included in this offer! For complete Messer check out Mr. Bones Messertrainer for Langes Messer
There are a variety of treatises on fencing with the Messer. Starting with the “Nürnberger Hausbuch (MS.3227a)” continuing with “Codex Wallerstein (Cod.I.6.4º.2)” and peaking in Johannes Lecküchners magnificent edition of 400 pieces (Cod.Pal.germ. 430, Cgm 582). Fighting with the Long knife or “Langes Messer” seemed to enjoy a lot of attention throughout the years.
This kit enables you to build an extravagant Messertrainer that allows you to follow the footsteps of the aformentioned fencing masters. Built in the well-proven sandwich design this Messer will become a trustworthy companion in your HEMA training as well as your sparring sessions. The stabilizers are made from high strength aluminum also used in aircraft and the bone shapes really make it a looker! The Nagel is also made of the same aluminum and formed into the shape of a skull. Buying this kit will allow you to make the blade yourself and use any material you like.
The choice of material really makes this a high quality long lasting and very durable training weapon!
