Flat Torques from Viking times. The choker is from brass and had been wrought by hand. It has a diameter of approx. 16 cm and is adjustable in size. Brass offers good qualities: it looks like gold but doesn’t stain to the skin.
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.
