Landsknecht Emporium – Gustav Messer – Beechwood Grip


Join the waitlist to be emailed when this product becomes available

Landsknecht Emporium’s Gustav is a shorter, yet wide-bladed Messer in the style of the late 15th and early 16th century; the design takes its features from several related antique Messers coupled with extant period depiction. One of the most characteristic blades for a Messer,  it has a short, yet wide blade with an elegant clip point. The sharp and well tempered blade is hand-ground from 6150/51crv4 high carbon steel and is ideal for powerful, close-quarters chops and vicious slices.

The guard with knuckle bar is crafted from mild steel and the Nagel is a separate piece peened on the other side of the quillon block, as it should be. The quillons are slid upward from the end of the grip with the blade protruding in the bottom. The tang is peened over the steel pommel plate. The handcrafted grip is crafted from two halves of polished Beechwood which are robustly riveted to the thick blade tang for a durable and lasting grip construction.

Landsknecht Emporium products aim to have the aesthetics of historical pieces, not the finish of mass-produced items. Each product bears the signs of its making; small tool marks and imperfections, which do not affect the build quality or usability but give each of our pieces its unique character.
