4 of 5 An improvement April 25, 2023
Reviewer: david bennett from madison, AL United States  
It's a light messer and an improvement on the last model. They went with a widened tip vs. the folded tip and the grip now has a kind of pommel. The wood is also nice.  The blade is much less beefy than an A&a or Landsknecht Emporium, but it does not hit as hard. Because of its lightness, it also doesn't have quite the presence of the other options, but is easier on the elbow if you're overusing the thumb grip or some other elbow heavy motion.

5 of 5 Perfect Balance, Perfect Flex March 14, 2023
Reviewer: Davis from Martinsburg, WV  
This is an excellently made feder - it moves extremely well in the hand, and has a great flex to it for safe sparring.  The ring works perfectly well as a nagel, and perhaps the only "downside" to it is that its probably a bit longer than a historical messer might be - it's more around the length of a typical arming sword.  Highly recommended.

5 of 5 Excellent service and a well-made sword March 25, 2021
Reviewer: Sam from Bronx, NY  
Purpleheart's typically excellent service had this to me in about a week, and I was fortunate to get ahold of it given how quickly the messer's with nagels went.

As for the weapon, it's very well balanced and a great weight for me. The length is where I'd expect, the POB is close to the guard, and the ring doesn't get in the way of anything like I was half-worried it would. A very well-made piece and I can't wait to really dive into messerfechten with it.
