    *** 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.

I am very partial to single edged longswords. i just cant stand the whole grip construction of katanas. swords such as this one are perfect for my tastes

Well I did some math. In my country an average salary is about 8000 UAH that's equal to 323 USD. After all payments like rent, food, transport and other, all you have left is about 2000 UAH or 80 USD.The sword costs 1670 USD. . . Let's calculate, 1670/80=20.87 months. You need more then a year and a half, to get enough money to purchase that sword.... Of course you will get that amount of money if you won't spend some of that money that left after payments like on medicine if you got sick or something else. P.S I am not complaining, I was just curious.

Wow, don't think I've EVER seen you so gushing impressed. This is a surprisingly sexy sword for a medieval weapon (although 15th century is the cusp). Looks like there could be some Indian or SE Asian influence on the design. It certainly seems unique for a European weapon from that period. Thanks for the video!

Except from the handle and hand guard, it is basically Turkish Kılıç, maybe a little longer...Turkish swords are single handed even if they are long or heavy..

Hey, at least you know quality when you see it (not to mention that for me as a German it is always kind of nice to see someone praise something either made in Germany or copied from a German original item - and that's without being some kind of patriot, it is just nice that great stuff used to come from German (still does in a few cases, I mean Heckler and Koch makes some of the best guns on the market and Krauss-Maffei Wegman makes one of the best tanks ever made, the Leopard 2 MBT!))...I'd love to own one (or even better, a sword I myself designed and made by a sword-smith :) )

100.000 years from now they'll find this sword in an archaeological dig and assume that in the early 21st century swords and guns were used simultaneously on the battlefield. Some goofball at History channel will obviously mention aliens again.

I got to see a real specimen of this sword in the armory in Vienna. It was a beautiful piece as is this reproduction. If I had this sword I don't think I could bring myself to use it, which would be it's own crime!

I wonder how effective it is against armor? But then again, I don't think the "landsknecht" were fighting armored knights, this sword came at a time when armies were slowly beginning to modernize and the age of feudalism was drawing to an eventual close in Europe.

I don't know if it's possible to half swording a Kriegsmesser but If it's possible than a Landknecht would half sword against low to decent armor and mordhau maybe heavy armor enemys

For a 15th Century combatant the sight of one of those was probably enough to make them tuck tail and run for their lives, it's no wonder the "landsknecht" were feared by their enemies, it must've been a terrifying experience to see a mercenary cleave an opponent clean in half with this weapon or worse, be on the receiving end of the blow!

2000$ or euro is not that much for a ready to battle sword reproduction (also nice sword). Look how many costs firearms reproduction, that is expensive hobby, you are lucky with your swords, don't whine here ;)

In German it's called "langes Messer" not "Kriegsmesser"! It was forbidden to use a sword, if you're not a knight, so the people used this knife.

You're thinking of the smaller, one-handed version. This is indeed a Kriegsmesser. https://www.europeana.eu/portal/en/record/15502/HJRK_A_123.html

I am curious if this is what Katana and Nodachi style blades would've evolved into if the Japanese had a greater amount of contact (somehow) with High Medieval Europe. Perhaps in the case of a more historical and realistically thought out For Honor universe?
