Bauernwehr with antler grip, Nagel closeup by SSSF
Bauernwehr with antler grip, Nagel closeup
The Bauernwehr was a larger knife fashionable in the 15-16th centuries in Germany, mostly among low- and middle-class civilians and peasants. Although some were clearly made for wealthier or more influential people based on the level of craftsmanship and decoration.
It's assembled like a knife, so essentially the Bauernwehr compares to daggers the same way the Messer compares to swords.

...


The blade is hand-forged from 51CrV4 (spring steel), heat-treated to 52-54HrC. The triple holes have brass inserts, just like the original.

The bolster and the pommel are made from 10mm thick mild steel, split down the middle. The Nagel (the stud perpendicular to the blade's plane) is filed from the same 10mm thick stock and is peened on the inner side.

The grip slabs are carved from antler and are fixed with hand-peened tubular brass rivets, without gluing.

The sheath is hand-sewn, embossed, incised and painted vegtan leather.

Overall length: 400mm/15.7"
Blade length: 245mm/9.64"
Blade width at base: 34mm/1.33"

Eating knife with embossed sheath by SSSF
Eating knife with embossed sheath
A simple eating knife with beech grip slabs and hollow brass rivets. Really, the knife itself is nothing special, maybe except for it's lack of any kind of gluing. The sheath is lightly embossed and incised, then coated with a thin layer of paint which brings out the incising pretty neatly in my opinion.

15th century eating set with walnut and brass by SSSF
15th century eating set with walnut and brass
From the 14th century, we start seeing large sets of cutlery in a single sheath. This one is in the style of the 15th century, with 3 knives and 2 prickers. Blades are hand-forged, ground and filed, the walnut handles are secured with hollow rivets as were most originals in the century. The brass accessories were soldered on like on several originals (as a very general rule, thick/solid brass is soldered, thin/sheet brass is riveted).

The sheath is the only part which saw any kind of modern glue, but I plan to use period hide glue next time.
