German for war knife, this LARP Kriegsmesser Dagger recreates a historic battle dagger that was a favorite weapon of soldiers and mercenaries throughout the German Late Middle Ages, from about the 14th century to the 16th century. With its straight-edged design, this dagger is an effective primary or secondary weapon, with a short cross-guard accented with a clam-shell on the side to provide plenty of defense to your hand. The grip is wrapped in suede and capped with a rounded pommel. It is crafted from an extremely durable foam that does not shred, which has been sealed within a strong coating of latex. As safety is always a concern in LARP, this weapon also features a round, flexible fiberglass core that bends and flexes. The core also features a durable Kevlar cap for added protection, both against the core and for when the weapon is used to stab.
Please note that the pommel and guard come in gold, silver, and bronze, while the suede handle wrapping can be either black or brown. We will send what is available unless you specify. If you would like to see what colors are available, please contact us before ordering.
The LARP Kriegsmesser Dagger has an average overall length of approximately 24 inches. Please be aware that this measurement can vary slightly, as it is a hand-made item.
Latex weapons do need to be maintained to a certain degree. We offer a Maintenance Silicone (MCI-2000) that can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. We recommend that you use this Silicone on a regular basis. It is an easy, spray on application, and it will keep the coating flexible, which will make the weapon last much longer. The maintenance silicone also protects the coating from drying out, and helps the weapon resist general wear and tear from normal use.
