We can find hat-shaped-helmets named as Kettle hats or Chapel de Fer (French) throughout the middle ages. This kind of head protections seems was common for the infantry, crossbowmen and bowmen. It was not rare to see knights or infantry to use this useful kind of helmets. This kettle hat with brass brim is based on a 13th century Spanish pattern.
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.
