Any knight on his mind would use gauntlets to protect his fingers. Fiore dei Liberi, italian master of the 15th C. written he used gauntlets allways in his duels. The gauntlets are, without any doubt, one of the most complicated and yet beautiful pieces of an armour. The ones we offer here are made at the 15th C. style of the german fashion. The high quality leather glove attached is stitched to the tip of the fingers, so it is easily removed, replaced or repaired.

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.
