Our Templar shield is made of curved wood and is strong with a tough canvas wrapped on both sides. The shield has two crossed hands on the back strap of leather and a leather arm band, which can be variably tightened by hand, which allows a rapid detachment from the plate (as described in the "Codex Manesse").
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.
