Two-handed langmesser, 15th Century
Langmessers (long knives) are mentioned in many historical fencing books as an effective and popular weapon of non-nobles. The shapes of Langmesser differ widely, they usually have an extra parrying element on the cross-guard. In our case it has a shape of a flat shell. Double-edged weapons were reserved for the nobility in the 15th century. This single-edged weapon was understood rather as a knife than a sword. The blade shape was inspired by the Bohemian Dussack and the Turkish sabre. The tang is covered with hardwood and wrapped with genuine cow leather.
