Unscrew the pommel, remove the handle, remove the cross-guard (basket) and then screw everything together again in reverse order with the new blade. Screw the pommel tight by hand. So that it does not slip in the hand, you can a piece of soft leather or cloth. The exchange is very easy. Everything will be clear when you see the blade with your own eyes.
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.
