The first known knockers come from the High Middle Ages. This model is inspired by knockers from the Renaissance. The hand forged steel 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 hand forged steel door knocker often an expression of the wealth and social status of the homeowner.
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.
