The word “sandal” is derived from the Greek word “sandalon”. Leather sandals are a type of shoes that is consisted of sole attached with leather straps to the instep, heel or ankle. The oldest known shoe is just a sandal. It was made from sagebrush bark, and its age is estimated at 10,000 years old. They were found on the territory of today’s Oregon. Also sandals from the ancient Egypt were found. Especially important persons were worn them there. Their sandals were made from palm-leaves and papyrus.

Also ancient Greeks wore sandals. The Greek god Hermes is often pictured with sandals. The sandals fell from grace during the boom of Christianity. These shoes were termed as undesirable, because it showed a woman's feet too naked.

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.
