Very solid reconstruction of medieval front laced ankle shoes. This kind of shoes was common in Europe from late Dark Ages up to late Middle Ages. The 2mm-thick upper leather is sewn using a turnshoe-style edge/flesh butt seam. The sole is made of several layers cowhide leather. This modern construction allows for an authentic turn-shoe "look", while offering more stability and durability.
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.
