Ensifer Talhoffer Messer
The Talhoffer Messer from Ensifer is based off of the messers found in the famous manuscript from 1459. They feature a tough protective nagel (guard) and a hollow ground blade to provide you an appropriately safe weight and flex while still retaining the full width of a historical blade.
Ensifer blades carry a warranty against breakage for 1 year from purchase, to be determined by the manufacturer.
Incredibly pleased with this sword, it handles wonderfully. light, fast, and with great flex in the thrust. one of my club instructors went so far as to say "it's the best messer"
