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.
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.
