Just finished a Elmslie type 3e (0) messer in Lecküchner style and it needs a good home.
Hand forged out of 80crv2 steel hardened and tempered to 56-57HRC
guard, pommel, and nagle are mild steel.
grip scales are 5000 year old bog oak sealed with beeswax and hand buffed to a dark gloss
maker's mark is hand inlaid copper
this is a very agile yet powerful double clipped messer with point on center-line for improved thrust accuracy.
stats:
Overall length 33" / 83.82cm
blade length: 26 7/8" / 68.2625cm
back edge sharpened for 16" / 40.64
blade width 2" / 5.08cm
grip length 4.25" / 10.795cm but the pommel gives a little extra room for those with big paws
weight 2lbs 6oz / 1077.2819g
Point of Balance 4" / 10.16

Price: $950 USD + shipping
