Grosse Messer - German Sword

Availability: Item currently out of stock, but can be back-ordered for our next delivery.
Brand: Cold Steel

Known throughout Germany as the “Big Knife”, the Grosse Messer hails from central and northern Europe where, in far off days of old, noblemen and peasants alike relied on it to protect hearth and home from the ravages of brigands, cut throats, outlaws and other assorted characters of ill repute.

Due to its stout, wide blade and generously sized handle, it could be wielded in one or both hands and was easily capable of shearing through chain mail.

Our version of this elegantly simple yet remarkably effective weapon sports a hand forged blade of 1055 Carbon steel that's so sharp we have used it to split a telephone book in half, with a single blow! The guard and heavy pommel are made from blued steel and feature rosewood handle scales riveted to the sword's full tang.

For convenience and safety, the Grosse Messer comes with a strong, handsome scabbard crafted from wood and covered in black leather. It is reinforced with a steel chape and throat that has been blued to match the guard and pommel.
