MAA Messer

Designed by Luke LaFontaine and Dave Baker, Cold Steel®'s new one-handed Messer is a sword that just has to be held to be appreciated! This modern interpretation of the historical German Langes Messer (or Long Knife) is beautifully balanced and a joy to use. Thinner and lighter than many of Cold Steel®'s current offerings, it handles almost like a giant Bowie knife! Its clip-point style blade is fully sharpened on the primary edge, with an un-sharpened 'false edge' terminating in a sturdy upswept point. The Messer's stylish and functional cross-guard, knuckle bow and pronounced shell-shaped Nagel are also blued to match the blade and enhance the rich brown of the Malaysian sal wood handle scales.

The medieval man-at-arms was a stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. Although he was not a Knight, he fought and trained alongside them as a brother in arms. To honor these rugged, salt-of-the-earth warriors, Cold Steel® has created a range of true journeyman's weapons called the Man at Arms Collection.

These battle-ready weapons may lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of Cold Steel®'s high-end weapons, but they are quite similar in quality and performance. The fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that complements the black handles. And when well-oiled, they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.

The Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of Cold Steel®'s finest blades, but at a markedly reduced price. If you always wanted a Cold Steel® piece but couldn't afford one, this collection is made for you.

1090 High Carbon Steel

1090 high carbon steel is an excellent choice for larger fixed blades. It takes and holds a good edge while remaining tough enough to withstand even Cold Steel®'s brutal stress tests. It is a good all-around performance high carbon steel that is very forgiving under shock.
