Hi All,

I made a bauernwehr a while back with some black and white inlaid work on the grip and I liked it, so I tried a similar handle inlay again.

I have seen some grosse messers with similar black and white checkerboard inlay on the grips and thought it would go well on a slightly fancy Bauernwehr, which is a knife style I particularly like at present, so that is the basis for the grips.

The pommel and bolsters are fairly normal shapes for these knives and the blade shape again is fairly normal, though many had a clipped point.

The scabbard is tooled leather with a leather liner and the stamps were etched by myself.

The blade is made from spring steel and is just under 6mm - 1/4" at the hilt and is exactly 12"/30cm long.

The fat finial to the chape is also quite a German feature.

This knife is for sale and available for immediate despatch. It is £380, $570, 456Euro and shipping would be £10 for UK and £15 for international.

I hope you like it.

Tod

Thank you - strong words indeed and very appreciated.

When it goes it will tug a bit at my heart because I do like this one.

Not the type of knife I generally am interested in as a type i.e. mostly civilian general purpose knife I assume, although I guess in a pinch it could be used in a fight, but it's extremely attractive and looks and feels very period as opposed to modern made.

Very nice and I don't know how Nathan can hold himself back from buying it ( Except for current budgetary reasons and bad timing for him ), as I think it's a type that he really likes.

Superlatives are in order tod (as usual)!

There is an authentic quality about your reproductions...one feels that with a touch of antiquing, none of your blades would feel out of place in the wallace collection line up.

can't wait to start on that dagger kit you sent me.

Cheers,

Julien

The bent-in plates of the bolster are a fascinating touch. I assume that's historically appropriate but I've never seen it done that way. Fantastic!!

Masterpiece after masterpiece, and this is yet another brilliant example. I also really like the inlay work, I'd like to see that more often:)

To be honest I don't know if this is historically accurate or not, but if you do not do this then there is quite a gap that fills with crud and catches stray threads and things........By bending the ends of the bolster down it largely removes these problems and looks neater too. It may not have happened on all of them, but it is so easy to do it must have been done on many. May I also congratulate you Sean on your extraordinary eyesight, to have spotted that from these pictures is quite an acheivement!

Thanks Sean and everyone who has said such nice things (nice quote Ben).

Sorry for the slight thread necro, but for those of us who don't know (yet) what period would a Bauernwehr like this date from? Cheers!

I think that would be round about the 15th century, at least they were quite present at that time which we know for a fact since Talhoffer and Ringeck and some of the other Masters show these weapons in their fighting manuals.
And while this one looks really great and is a piece of wonderful craftsmanship I myself am more drawn towards the simple wooden scales on the hilt, this is a bit to fancy for my taste.
But still, if I wouldn't already own a similar knife...

That's what I thought, which is why I was curious that Ben said it's not in his time period. From Ben's kit, I thought he was aiming at the mid 1470s ... but then, I know he has said what an eyesore it is to see sallets from the 1480s-90s on people supposedly portraying a decade or two ealier ... so is this style of Bauernwehr clearly much earlier or later in the 15thC? Tod? Anyone?

Mid-15th century is about right. In this case, probably later rather than earlier. I'll throw out circa 1470-90 for the hell of it.

Can anyone suggest a good source of images and information about Bauernwehr - both so we're all more educated about questions like the likely time period for a piece like this, but also to just generally know more about them ... not meaning to derail this thread, as to know more about them would help some of us (okay, me Happy ) comment when we see works of art like this.

Look through the old Hermann Historica catalogs. Lots of knives there.
