One of the earliest attempts at body armor, this type of armor was made with layers of stiffened linen or as we have chosen to offer, leather. This is one of the classical forms of battle dress and served as some protection from cuts and the potential deadly stones from slingers that shot from the shelter of the battle line. Expertly hand crafted and embellished. Custom sized.

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.
