Grossmesser, Grossemasser, Krieg Messer (German: Grosses Messer, Kriegsmesser, sometimes lange Messer, English: Grossmeisser) is a literal translation: a large, military or long knife.
It is a combat knife that has grown to the size of a sword. The two-handed version of this weapon is commonly called Craig Messer (Kriegsmesser) and has been known since the XVI century. Very close to falcion, only longer.
Blades come in different types and sizes and very different levels of curvature, but sharpening is always one-sided, there is also a slight expansion at the end of the blade, a bevel on the tip is used for injections. Therefore, the main distinguishing feature is the handle: with a flattened shank on the sides, covered on both sides with wooden slats
