Our Messer Guard is made from 1/4″ hardened 4130 carbon steel. This guard features straight quillions with a total tip-to-tip length of 8″ and a “nagel”, a fluted flat plate that stands 3″ tall to protect the hand. While we don’t offer much customization to this guard, we do offer the 3 finishes: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin metal finish. “Blued”, a heat blued finish. Naturally darker, more durable and rust prohibitive than chemical bluing. Finally, “Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish that provides the best rust resistance and detail preservation.
We designed this guard to be an all-around perfect representation of the basic German Messers or “knives” from the 1400’s through the early 1600’s.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Back Sword Blade, Standard Long Sword Blade, Type XV Blade, Type XI Blade and especially our Messer blade!
