    Be still my heart... I've wanted a messer for so long, and these are exquisite.

    One day... One day...
    But hey, at least I still have my hands!

    I like where the wood meets the pommel - how the curve of the wood is met with the inverse curve of the steel, and that the gap is seamless. Very nice.

    Wonderful work! The langes messer is one of my favorite weapon styles, and the Paulus Kal design in particular is my favorite of the type. Mr. Roth has done a wonderful job in bringing these to "life"!

    Can somebody tell me if the pommel is a part of the tang or pinned on? I have seen some old ones that looked like the pommel was a part of the tang. If so, how was the cross installed?

    They are most likely pinned on like bolsters, or the pommel is a threaded block or like a traditional tang it is peened.

    I find the blade on the second one to be kinda intimidating, actually.

    It looks like a sword that really means business.
