In the second half of the 15th century, the art of crafting plate armor reached its peak when it came to fusing form with function. Despite its weight, heavy plate armor allows the warrior wearing it enough freedom of movement.
The steel plate gauntlets have adjustable leather straps for fastening on the wrist and additional leather straps over the fingers. The plate protection of the thumb is connected via hinge to the mitten gloves.
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.
