Regenyei Langes Messer

Langes Messer is a German term meaning “long knife.” Today, this refers to a wide variety of sword-length weapons that, generally speaking, have a knife-hilt type construction, are single edged (some have a sharp “clip point” towards the tip of the back edge) blades, and frequently have a “nagel” or “nail” jutting out from one side of the cross in a sort of “third cross bar.” Typically associated with the German speaking regions of Europe these langes messer were used in a variety of contexts including farming, teamster work, and hunting. Langes messer may or may not have a pommel, most commonly a “birds beak” pommel, and may or may not have a slight radius to the blade.
