Hungarian Blades

Postby Szabolcs Waldmann » 15 Aug 2006 07:44

Hello,

I thought I just write it in here. Our Swordsmaker in Order of the Sword, Peter Regenyei (you met him in Dijon I think) is making custom weapons, all handmade (grinded, or forged by ordering desire and wallet preferences ;) ). He is making Longswords, arming swords, rapiers, daggers, twohanders, sabers and whatnot. The prises range from 180 Euro for a handmade grinded blade to 400 Euro for a very good custom forged sword, and for shorter swords and daggers he is doing damasc as well. In case of ordering two or more swords he is willing to deliver them personally to london.

Is our homepage. All weapons you may see are made by him. I espetially recomend This page: http://www.sword.sg18.net/hu/ruestkamme ... _index.htm where most weapons can be seen.

This is his personal page, very bad if you ask me, and old. It gets a redisign right now, still you may find some good swords on it.

You can contact him via email: rp80@freemail.hu
Or you can contat me via email: cross.hueller@freemail.hu
Or you can phone me: 0036 20 667 33 10

It's a giant messer - there are at least two or three examples in museums in Vienna.

Yeah thanx Fabrice ;)

Yes, that is a gigantic messer. We call taht Kriegsmesser. Three years ago we thought the messer nomenclature is as follows:
Messer: one handed, short
Langes Messer: One handed, longer
Grosse Messer: equivalent of the Longsword, a hand and a half messer
Kriegsmesser: equivalent of the bidenhander, a purely twohanded messer.

Well, last year we learned that this is not entirelly correct, for the museums for example call everything a grosse messer... :shock:

I know of more than two surviving examples. Some say, it was only a show off weapon, for ceremonies and alike; I learned that it can actually be wielded almost as fast as a Twohander, wich is as fast as a longsword, if done correctly. So if it actually took part in wars, we cannot say. My opinion: YES! That is a cutting power you would never believe. And btw, there are a lot twohander, one-edged cutting swords shown in medieval artworks, like in the machiowsky (or howsit called) bible.

Hi Szab - the ones in the Maciejowski Bible are more like cut-down polearms IMO - they seem to be mounted into a short stick by a socket, like a glaive or bill.
Of course it doesn't make much difference to the person getting hit how exactly the blade is mounted ;).
