This sword has been developed in collaboration with the fencing group of Mr. Hermann Klinkhammer (Baron of Vussem) so that it meets the requirements of a fencing Show – Horse tournament. The Sword blade is lightened with a transverse grind (edge thickness approx. 1mm) and well balanced (POB approx. 6cm). A steel segment was inserted into the wooden pommel, so that this edeal balance could be achieved. This Gladius was tested and revised several times until we were able to present its "tuned" version. We firmly believe that it can contribute to the success of your show as well!

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.
