Very nice replica of an Italian rapier hilt with curved from the 16th cen. By changing the fighting technique, the blades were longer and narrower with the output of the mid-Laters. Thus, the conventional sword was replaced by the more elegant rapier. In the Renaissance period the wearing of rapiers was also a symbol of social status for noble men. Higher nobles, such as counts and barons wore longer blade, lower nobles had to make do with shorter arms.
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.
