The design of the hanger is inspired by historical documentation. It is an interesting fact that already at that time the wearer used to have historical hand forged buckles. The historical rapier and smallsword hanger is made of up to 3.5 thick cowhide. It is composed of a carrying strap and a bottom hangerto which leather strings are fastened to provide for attachment of a scabbard to the hanger.
All metal parts are hand-hammered. The carrying strap can be shortened or extended according to the wearer's height. The standard length of the belt is 160 cm and can be shortened or extended too with a robust buckle. At your request we will make the product in a different size that you specify in your order. Besides the colour shown in the picture the bag is available in other colours: see the choice of colour.
Wearing of swords and rapiers with bare blade can be dangerous. It can lead to injury or damage to the blade. This Bandelier can be on request delivered with leather sheath made to the size of your sword´s blade. If that's your wish, please make a note in the comment of your order the following data:
Please note: This product is made by hand from genuine leather. This is a purely natural material. Minor differences in the colour and surface texture are its natural characteristics. These small imperfections do not decrease the value of the product. Each piece is to some extent an original.
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.
