Ah my bad!I had assumed it was conventional double-edged [In reply to] Can't Post

just from assumption since I didn't manage to find the relevant information on the messer before. But just now I saw one in wiki, of all places, the general definition. So yes: "a term for the class of single-edged bladed weapons". Intriguing.

But like I said, I'm a hack with regards to specifics. The link between the Rohirrim weapons with the messer just jumped out when I saw that first messer image in Kathuphazg‚n'a link.Evil


I'm a lurker. Fan of both books and movies; it seems I have severely misnamed myself... for the moment.


Heart Appreciating Thranduil, thread by thread: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII
(Tis true! More appreciation threads for Thranduil exist than ME movies)


Laugh Thrall Wars!: What business do Elves, Dwarves or Men(?) have with drooling thralls, yea, with smartphones in tow, unto the slopes of Erebor? ... oh, yes, the Hobbit's lingering in some shadows, ever ready to swoop to the hairy rescue. Take cover if you dare!

            Totally agree Loresilme Send a private message to Loresilme Aug 5, 12:27am
                having a loose basis in reality only, even if an on set weapon master has some groundign in historical sword use it gets adapted and changed significantly to look good on film ElendilTheShort Send a private message to ElendilTheShort Aug 5, 1:13am
                    Agree, and would apply to most theatrical fight scenes as well Loresilme Send a private message to Loresilme Aug 5, 2:21am
                    Sure Lurker in the Mirk Send a private message to Lurker in the Mirk Aug 5, 1:44pm

                        Lurker my understanding is that the only definition is a sword mounted as a knife ElendilTheShort Send a private message to ElendilTheShort Aug 8, 1:19am
