These classic hand-hammered Renaissance Jack Chains, nicely fluted jack chains were worn during the Renaissance and were Ideal for protecting the arms from slashing cuts. They are made of 1,6 mm thick carbon steel. Consisting primarily of two shells individually contoured to fit over the shoulder and the elbow, each individual jack chain fits a single arm. Genuine leather tie straps are used to secure the armour in place.
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.
