Grosse Messer -
Manufacture ID: 88GMS
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 capable of shearing through chain mail or cutting a man in half with a single strike.
This version of this elegantly simple yet remarkably effective weapon sports a hand forged blade of 1050 high carbon steel that's so sharp it has been 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.
