An artfully shaped mask like those in this category will nicely complement your original Renaissance and Baroque costume. It will make from you a mysterious and charming person who is welcome at every carnival or fancy dress party. These Venetian masks are made in a small family company in Venice, where the masks are traditionally hand-crafted. The success of these masks lies in precision of the hand-craft and the combination of art, taste and originality, which has been refined during centuries. The base of the mask is made of papier-mâché, which is applied in layers. A charming mask proudly recognizing its historical origin is created thanks to the final hand-painting. It can be bound on the head by means of a black ribbon.
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.
