Synthetic Danzig Messer
Messer means knife. This was the everyday man's tool, something that everyone had in their house and/or on their person during the medieval period. They served as a machete, a hunting implement, a self-defense tool--and they were great for fighting! The ring nagel on this messer provides ample protection for your dominant hand when used appropriately. If you like grappling, there is plenty of hilt here to do more complex wraps and maneuvers. We love all messers, but we especially love these.

Very nice quality and a very visually appealing form. It's like a bastard dagger, almost a falchion but capable of brutal two-handed strikes. It's very nice for single sword work, but a little tricky with an offhand weapon.
