From the starting use of the steel protections to the use of complete arms there is almost one hundred years of difference. In the 16th century in its most complicated design we can see steel arms with full protection. The 15th century gave us the most beautiful amours, namely the Italian style.
These steel arms are a nice example of Italian style, corresponding with the time between years 1390 and 1450.
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.
