Since ancient times was nothing so important for a warrior as his shield! It protected the warrior against long range weapons like bows or crossbows. Equally indispensable was the shield at close combats. Every warrior strove to prevent his sword from damage and hence fenced the enemy’s blows with the shield whenever possible. This is a fact that is often forgotten at medieval stage combats!
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.
