During the medieval times both noblemen and peasants had to save themselves from thieves that broke into homes. Grosse Messer sword which was also known as the big knife in Germany was effectively used to keep thieves at bay. It could cut a thief in two with a single blow.
This sword could be handled with one hand or both hands and it has a sharp edge. Since it weighs as much as 4 pounds it becomes ideal for cutting. However, these swords are good additions for medieval sword collections. You could have it in your display cupboard and show it to your friends.
This being a replica of one of the deadliest medieval weapons it comes with a leather sheath which has an inner layer of wood. This protects the sharp edges of the sword and it makes it safer for the user to handle it. Even you could use it as a part of your costume when you go for a party. But never draw it out of its sheath as it is very sharp.
