Although heel shoes are depicted in ancient Egyptian murals on tombs and temples, the earlier mentions about human leg in heel shoes come from Hellenic times.

The wearing of heel shoes was booming in Europe in the 16th century and was lasted until the French Revolution. Then the low shoes were worn again, because the heel was a sign of wealth and well-being of the nobility. High heels were worn by Louis IX., Mary I Tudor, and Catherine de' Medici.

The ownership of heel shoes was associated with the ownership of horse, because this type of footwear was suitable for leg in the stirrup. The heel is back in vogue in the 19th century and they keep there to this day. The heels have also erotic function. Heel has an impact on posture of women - accentuates the bust and bottom.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

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

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.
