The historical belt is made of up to 4 mm thick smooth cowhide. The belt's length is 150 cm. If you pay a certain additional fee we will produce for you a longer belt to order. The belt's maximum production length is 210 cm. The belt's width is 4 cm. The belt is provided with hand-hammered wrought buckle that was modelled on a specimen from circa the 10th -11th century. The leather belt is connected to the wrought buckle with a leather strip. Along its entire edge the belt is decorated with an engraved groove.
Advice for the wearer of the leather belt with a twisted wrought buckle: If you untangle the leather strip you can replace the buckle with any buckle of the same width. Please specify your waist measure in your order. Based on this information we will cut holes in your belt to secure that it fits well. Otherwise the first hole is cut out at the length corresponding to the waist measure of 90 cm.

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.
