[REQ] The Messer


Recommended Posts

The messer is a family of similar-looking slightly curved, single-edged blades, with a pointy tip should you need to thrust. Those weapons are known to be cheap, replacers for the arming sword that evolved into the longsword and are also loopholes about a law that forbid commoners from owning swords. It is used by Germans during the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance (14th to 16th centuries, that is).


Here are some pictures:

Messers are also available in one-handed or two-handed versions, the latter being known to be used by Landsknechts when not using their pikes or the Katzbalger.


I have a one-handed messer in mind. Can anyone consider this request, please?
