During the German Late Middle Ages and Renaissance (14th to 16th centuries), the Messer was a term for the class of single-edged bladed weapons, deriving from the medieval falchion and preceding the modern sabre. Although there is no strict classification governing messer styles, in this case Langes Messer refers to the fact that this weapon has a longer grip and can be used with 2 hands. The Messer was part of the curriculum of several fencing manuals in the 14th and 15th centuries.
