Description
CS88GMSSM: 88GMSSM Man at Arms Messer Sword
Cold Steel
 
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.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Wood Handles
Wood Handles
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.

Messer Impresser
Balance and sharpness is superb. Blade is thin for a CS but it will handle any necessary task other than chopping down a 15' oak. Great little sword to have around camp for chores as well as protection. I carry it while bowhunting wild hogs in case things get close and personal.
