The belt is composed of five 3 cm wide tassels in the total length of circa 40 cm. The belt's width is 4 cm. The belt's length is 120 cm (at request you can a 150 cm long belt). When ordering this product, please specify your waist measure. Besides the colour shown in the picture the belt is available in other colours: see the choice of colour.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
