This Barbuta replicates a 15th century helmet that was popular throughout Europe. Bearing a strong resemblance to the helmets of the ancient Corinthians, the Barbuta (or Barbute) was found not only with the facial cut-out-shape shown in our model but with a T-shaped cut-out (no nasal) and with an open-faced rectangular cut-out. Designed as a helmet for regular infantry, it fitted closely to the skull and nape of the neck and the sides almost touched the shoulders, providing very good protection.

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.
