Grosmesser, Grosmeister, Kraigmesser (German: Gross Messer, Kriegs messer, sometimes lange Messer, English: Grosmeister) 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 the Kreigmesser (Kriegs messer) and has been known since the XVI century. Very close to falchion, only longer. Blades come in different shapes and sizes and very different levels of curvature, but the sharpening is always one-sided, there is also a small extension at the end of the blade, for pricks, a bevel is used on the tip. Therefore, the main distinguishing feature is the handle: with a flattened shank on the sides, covered on both sides with wooden slats.
