The Tinker Norman sword pair, with their distinctive cruciform guard and brazil-nut pommel, are similar in weight and static balance and offer virtually identical handling characteristics. Both are harmonically balanced, optimizing the handling characteristics for the re-enactor in the case of this blunt version. The blade is forged in 5160 high carbon steel and marquenched to HRC 50-52, providing anti-burr safety. The grip is wood-cored and leather-covered over a cord wrap.

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.
