This type of Viking splinted vambraces dates back to the 7th century. It was designed according to archaeological finds in Valsgärde. They were quite common but the warrior's financial means were also of importance in this case. They protected their wearer against undesirable sword blows. These Viking forearm guards are made of 2 mm thick hand forged iron bars.
The splinted vambraces can be drawn tight to adapt to the forearm's circumference with laced leather straps. These Viking vambraces are designed for real use, they are fully combat-ready! They are made by a Czech armourer. It is no cheap import from Asia.

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
