Renaissance shoes often had broad and flat points. Therefore, they were called as Cow-Mouth shoes. Sometimes they are called also Bear's Claw shoes. These shoes are typical footwear of early modern times (16th century). Cow-Mouth shoes were developed from so called Duck’s Bill shoes. And Duck’s Bill shoes were developed from Poulaines (the pointed shoes). Cow-Mouth shoes have broad soles, are high not even one inch on the sides and at the back. They have typical slits at the front.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

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.
