Type III Pentti Synthetic Nylon Messer Version 4V4 - Upgraded guard.The Purpleheart Type III synthetic messer 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.Historical examples were approximately 30 inches overall with a 24-inch blade, and weighed 2-2.5 lbs (.9-1.1 kg). 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.**If choosing multi-color grip, please specify colors in the comments at checkout.***See Sizing tab for more information.
