The type of gorget can be seen by the end of the 15th C. It represents a logical evolution of armour development. Combining a sallet with this gorget provides improved protection in comparison to a bascinet with aventail and visor. This kind of protection includes a rigid neck guard (yet articulated) offering a great protection and efficiency. Our version is made in the style common in Central Europe between years 1480 and 1500.
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.
