The combat gauntlet with a vambrace was modelled on the specimen from the period of crusades to Palestine. The Leather combat gauntlet with metal fittings on the cuff is formed of the front part that protects fingers against sword hacks. The finger protecting part is circa 1 cm thick. The edges of the guard are lined with a leather lining that provide perfect flushing of the edge. The rear part of the gauntlets is made of 3 mm thick smooth cowhide. It serves to protect the forearm. Iron forged plates preventing the sword hacking through the guard and other injuries to the forearm are attached to the vambrace with copper rivets. The vambrace is fixed with leather strip.
Gauntlets are mobile to a certain extent and do not prevent the fencer from controlling the movement of his sword. The given price refers to a single piece of combat gauntlet, however you can also order the pair (2 pieces).
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.
