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.
