Cold Steel 88GMSSM Man at Arms Messer Sword 22" Blued 1090 Carbon Blade, Leather Sheath
CS88GMSSM: 88GMSSM Man at Arms Messer Sword
Designed by Luke LaFontaine and Dave Baker, Cold Steel’s 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 rosewood handle scales.
