What exactly do you think is the difference between a swiss saber with a messer hilt and a plain old messer? Happy
The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing;
Rush in and die, dogs -- I was a man before I was a king.

Hello
I`am wanting to have, OdinBlades, make me a, Swis saber ,with a double ring guard,but with a messer style grip.
I was just wondering if that would be anywhere near historical.

That would be a grossemesser, langesmesser, kriegsmesser, or whatever.
