The baldric was also used to carry heavy burdens, such as the drum. However most often weapons (sword, rapier, smallsword) would be hung on it. The baldric for a smallsword or rapier is made of up to 3 mm thick cowhide. It is hung on the shoulder and worn diagonally across the chest. The length of the carrying strap can be shortened or extended via a robust buckle.Along its entire length the baldric is decorated with silvery lace that is sewn onto the leather part of the baldric. Loops used to attach a rapier scabbard are threaded through the bottom widened part of the baldric. The maximum length of the carrying strap is 160 cm. At your request we can produce longer straps.
Besides the colour shown in the picture the baldric is available in other colours: see the choice of colour.
Wearing of swords and rapiers with bare blade can be dangerous. It can lead to injury or damage to the blade. This Bandelier can be on request delivered with leather sheath made to the size of your sword´s blade. If that's your wish, please make a note in the comment of your order the following data:
Please note: This product is made by hand from genuine leather. This is a purely natural material. Minor differences in the colour and surface texture are its natural characteristics. These small imperfections do not decrease the value of the product. Each piece is to some extent an original.
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.
