Kriegsmesser was a two-handed Messer variant popular in the renaissance and often connected with Landsknechts and mercenary armies. It is dubbed as „European Katana“ which isn’t very precise but gives you the idea. It’s an imposing sword which not only looks great but bears respect. To help cover your hands, the Kriegsmessers featured a large Nagel or Ring to help with parrying or work in the bind. The SIGI Kriegsmesser is 100% ready for use in practice, sparring and tournaments or stage combat and renaissance fairs. They are safe, light, flexible yet with a great amount of control and durability. Their flex is similar to our feders. Handles are made of Oak which has a beautiful texture and is connected by full or blank rivets.
