    *** Specifications ***
    Overall length: 113 cm (44.5 in)
    Blade length: 85.5 cm (33.6 in)
    Blade thickness: 7.25 mm (between 9/32 and 5/16 in) near the guard, tapering down to 3.25 mm (about 1/8 in) near the point
    Blade material: 6150 carbon steel, tempered to around 55 HRC
    Weight: 1375 g (3 lbs)
    Point of balance: 12.5 cm (5 in) from the hilt
    Price: 1735 - 1760 USD
    *** Pros / Cons ***
    + Strong, tough blade with remarkably tightly fit, sturdy hilt assembly
    + Flawless finish, crisp lines, smooth satin polish
    + Very comfortable and secure grip
    + Superb handling, very lively in the hand
    + Excellent blade geometry
    + Impressive cutting power
    - Expensive
    *** Verdict ***
    In short, this is the best sword in my collection, and in fact the best I've handled so far. When I first picked it up I was blown away by how nimble it feels in the hand. When I did the first cutting practice I was astonished by how little resistance I felt as the blade passed through the soaked tatami mat.
    Everything about this sword (or "war knife") is impressive... design, built quality, performance, aesthetics, you name it. It certainly is a lot of money to spend on a reproduction of a historical weapon, but you do very much get what you pay for here.

That's just you. :) The blade profile and cross-section, proportions, guard, grip, and pommel are very different. The only real similarity is that they are both curved and single-edged.

One would think you would say kilograms and pound as probably 95% or more of your viewers live in the USA. It's just frustrating when I know your videos are intended for the USA and you don't take the time to address the difference in measurements even though it is your living! I just don't get the mentally at all. I have no idea what a kilogram is, like why would I? Anyways obviously you have the secret sauce just a suggestion, would be like a 15% better if you used pounds and kilos.

Idk... If you're spending almost 2 grand on a sword I personally dont think you should be able to make it sharper? If they're making 2k dollar swords they should have an array of whetstones, and make the sword as sharp as humanly possible. Or at least sharper than you can do in your home without an array of whetstones. That's my only complaint.

This is the Katana without the bad things about a Katana. That isn‘t up to debate, they are both single-edged, two handed swords designed for cutting. Just that the Kriegsmesser‘s quality of steel is better, the blade sturdier and it‘s safer to wield because it has a cross-guard!

Buying a very high-end sword, putting it through rigorous torture testing, and accurately reporting that you were pleased with that sword's properties is not "fanboying." Fanboying is buying a sword, doing no testing at all, and still claiming that it can cut through a tank.

Over priced especially since the only thing that was done by hand on that sore was the handle everything else was literally done with a CNC machine nothing was forged nothing was handmade everything was done with a machine except for assembly so to pay $2,000 for the sword that wasn't handmade is about $1,200 overpriced especially considering it's only 5160 which is an awesome steal but there are a lot of super Steels that are out nowadays with the technology and they used Spring Steel which is what are leaf springs in our vehicles are made out of for $2,000 alrighty then. It is an awesome looking sword but extremely overpriced

Isn't it technically a knife since the German word for knife is "messer" I also heard back in the day, German civilians couldn't legally own true "swords" ie: double edged, cruciform designed, etc and to get around this law, some civilians took the design of legal knives and simply scaled up the size and steels to common sword sizes since the law had no size limit for knives but did have design traits, ie: single edge, clip points, no double edge, obvious use for field work, like husking wheat, removing branches from large trees or limbs and such. Obviously the messers of even this size can do those things as well as be a weapon like their smaller brethren Any truth to this or made up to sell these?

Swords are just upscaled knives so there is no real definition of one. I consider this a sword because of the size
