Red Dragon HEMA Synthetic Sparring Messer


Be the first to review this product

We have been working hard with plastics experts to formulate a new grade of high impact plastic for our messer/cutlass blades. After extensive testing we are now convinced we have produced a virtually indestructible blade! Well we haven’t managed to break one yet! Rest assured this change has not affected the flexibility or weight of the blades.

Product Description


Proline Xtreme Lightweight Messer

During the German Late Middle Ages and Renaissance (14th to 16th centuries), the Messer was a term for the class of single-edged bladed weapons, deriving from the medieval falchion and preceding the modern sabre. The Messer was part of the curriculum of several fencing manuals in the 14th and 15th centuries, including Lecküchner, Codex Wallerstein and Albrecht Dürer. The interchangeable guard features a nagel and can be easily changed for right or left handed people. With addition of an Extended Pommel, this item can be converted into a Langes Messer. The addition of a Basket Hilt and Pommel creates a Cutlass and adding a Single Hand Guard and Wheel Pommel creates a Falchion.

The Lightweight Messer Blade has been developed in response to feedback from the global HEMA community. It is noticeably lighter than the standard Messer blade and is constructed from a slightly softer blend of plastic which has a little more give on impact and makes for a softer thrust. This allows for safer sparring than with the previous heavier and harder blades.
