Pentti Synthetic Kriegsmesser

V3 - Upgraded guard.


The Purpleheart Type III synthetic Kreigsmesser "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.

First Time Buyer
This sword feels great, while the shipping time was a little slow and I didn't receive updates from Purple Heart I honestly didn't mind. When the sword did arrive it was such a surprise I felt like a kid on Christmas. Pulling it out of the box I felt the quality of the sword immediately. The cord wrapping, the weight, and the balance all felt just right. I am new to HEMA and sword fighting in gene

Well made and feels good in hand
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.
