Brigandine Armor Visby

Valdemar IV of Denmark sent a group of armed men to Gotland coast on 22th July 1361. Local men were poorly armed and could not withstand the Vladimir’s invading troops. Archaeological remains of this battle were described as "one of the most fearsome revelations of a medieval battle known to archaeologists". There are many studies about armors used in this battle due to the large quantity of finds in the mass graves. Brigandine armors offer similar protection as the steel cuirasses, but provide a greater freedom of movements. This model is possibly one of the most popular ones that was documented among as an evidence of the cruel battle at Visby.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

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.
