Laced poulaines with distinctive curved points

During the High Middle Ages, men began to wear long toed shoes called poulaines. Young men stuffed wool, horsehair or moss into the toe extensions to keep them erect. Blatantly phallic and sometimes so long that attachments with a chain to the knee were needed to prevent tripping. Small bells were often attached to the tip, indicating that the wearer was a willing partner for a sexual frolic.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

How and what materials are your daggers made from?

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.
