Here’s a piece I’ve wanted for a while. It is a custom Grosse Messier done by Arms and Armour. I drew out the design and they made it for me; although I have to say this is really a classic design that saw a lot of use for many generations.
3/16” thick at handle and tapering to 1/8” near the tip
Wood grip full tang construction with some heavy contouring.
Balance point 2.75” in front of the guard
All in all I am very happy with all the items I’ve gotten from A&A, they make pieces to be used that exhibit proper handling.
Here is the sheet I sent them with the rough design and some photos; I think you’ll agree they matched it exactly.
