The first known knockers come from the High Middle Ages. This model is inspired by knockers from the Renaissance. The iron door knocker is attached to the outside of the door. The movable ring strikes the iron plate to urge the people inside a house or apartment to open the door.
Both the knocker and the plate fitted to the door consist of carbon steel to generate a very audible tapping, even on a very robust doors. As the design of the door itself is also the iron door knocker often an expression of the wealth and social status of the homeowner.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
