These vambraces with lacing are designed for active fencers and reenactors. In the dark medieval ages this type of vambraces was popular due to its practical and durable nature.
The vambraces are made of 3-4 mm thick smooth cowhide. These are quite robust guards that will protect your elbow against undesirable blows. The upper part of the vambraces is provided with decorative lacing with a 2.5 mm thick leather strip. The strip is used to draw the guard tight at three spots. The bottom part of the guard (so-called upholstered part) is made of fine 0.5-1.5 mm thick leather. The thicker leather is joined to the thinner leather by sewing together. After the long strings are threaded though the buckles they can be pulled under the buckles.

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.
