This medieval surgical kit is composed of eight hand-forged medical tools as partly already used by the ancient Romans but above all during the Middle Ages. The perfect gear for the portrayal of a healer, feldsher, doctor or surgeon at medieval reenactment and LARP events.
Each tool, namely an awl, a pair of scissors, hooks, a knife, a scalpel, tweezers and a bone saw, are forged from non-stainless steel. The whole set comes with a matching leather bag (approx. 14 x 23 cm).
In the Middle Ages, the medical profession was not exclusively practiced by learned physicians. Quite often, especially in times of war, artisan surgeons, feldshers and so-called barber surgeons would also perform surgery.
Important note: It goes without saying that this product is solely a prop to be used for historical re-enactment, LARP, theatrical performances, etc. This surgical kit is by no means suitable for people's treatment. We thus strongly advise against its practical use.
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.
