Any knight on his mind would use decorated 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 blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
