The Grosse Messer is known as the big knife in German, though obviously much smaller (and sharper) than our YSB 'big knife' practice blade. Its lightness takes a bit of adjustment, but then you discover it is much more agile and quick than the practice saber. It is also of a much more realistic size if you are looking to train with something you would actually use in a fight. The handle to blade ratio and wider blade width make this sword adapt well to Large Saber practices.
Easy to make friends with and easy to adapt to this or any saber form, the Grosse Messer is an excellent weapon for the YSB saber practitioner to own.
