This fully battle-ready version of a Norman Longsword is mostly enjoyable: it’s well-balanced to allow excellent and very fast handling but offers the necessary robustness as well. The hardened spring steel blade is forged through to the pommel and riveted at the end of the handle. The hilt consists of steel tang covered with hard wood, wrapped in genuine leather. The cross-guard and the pommel are made of steel. The blade's point is rounded.

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.
