The individual parts are connected with firm leather straps and sturdy brass buckles that are riveted to the steel parts with brass rivets with rosette-washers. The two-piece shiftet breastplate has a flat bulge (also called Tapul), four taces with a central ridge and one-piece tassets with fluted edges. The back plate has a central, upward groove. All the circumferential edges are bordered.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
