Pentti Synthetic Kriegsmesser

V3 - Upgraded guard.


The Purpleheart Type III synthetic Kriegsmesser "War Knife" recreates the German long knife used during the 14th to 16th centuries. The same quality material as our classic Pentti sword series. This features a metal pommel for balance, and a steel guard with a nagle for extra strength and protection.

Use of the messer is shown in several fencing manuals, including Lecküchner and the Codex Wallerstein. The Type III messer waster balance tends more towards the tip, as befits the heavy cutting blade of actual messer examples. Think of it as a German-sized Bowie knife, and you will not be too wrong.

During the German Late Middle Ages and Renaissance (14th to 16th centuries), the Messer was a term for the class of single-edged bladed weapons, deriving from the medieval falchion and preceding the modern sabre.

The Messer was part of the curriculum of several fencing manuals in the 14th and 15th centuries, including Lecküchner, Codex Wallerstein and Albrecht Dürer. Also know as a langesmesser.

See Sizing tab for more information.

4 of 5 Well made and feels good in hand May 28, 2020
Reviewer: Ethan McCarty from Hattiesburg, MS United States  
I would gladly give this sword a 5 star rating, but the blade came up a little shorter than I expected a kriegsmesser would be. This is no fault of anyone, just a personal preference. Overall a well made product and great designed.

5 of 5 Fantastic Sword February 14, 2020
Reviewer: Darian Lane from Sioux Falls, SD United States  
Although the shipping speed wasn't what I'm used to, it's something that's to be expected when such fine craftsmanship goes into making this sword. Even though this sword is for practice, it still does not fail to amaze me every time I pick it up. The overall weight and balance are amazing and it feels great whenever you hold it. I've had some friends hold it and a few of them said they would like to buy some of their own! Overall, this sword is awesome, even if it's just for practice. I would highly recommend ordering this particular messer, especially since it closely resembles that of historical finds.

5 of 5 Great quality October 17, 2018
Reviewer: Gerry Schipper from Manchester, MD United States  
I got this for my 21 year old grandsons birthday and he was thrilled with it!  I was very happy with the customer service.  When I didn’t hear that it had been shipped yet, I contacted them telling them when his birthday was and when it would be shipped.  That is when I realized these were handmade as the delay was due to some editing of the sword.  However they shipped it so I got it right on his birthday!  I too was thrilled!  Thanks so much.

5 of 5 Great sword February 12, 2018
Reviewer: Gregory M from Aston, PA United States  
I love this sword. The handle is like a langes messer which I love. Very well balanced. Can be used one handed but is better with two. Great construction, and helpful support staff when I had an ordering issue.
