Cuff bracers are an indispensable aid (to protect wrists) for active fencers. Their model dates back to the Early Gothic period. They are mainly used to pull tight wide sleeves of shirts and other clothing. They are made of 1.8-2 mm thick dyed smooth cowhide. The bracer'slength is 10.5 cm. When ordering this product, please specify your wrist and forearm circumference.
The cuff bracer is fastened with two buckles that provide for the tightening of the bracer to adapt it to varying circumference. Besides the colour shown in the picture the vambraces are available in other colours: see the choice of colour.
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.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
