Renaissance fashion differed from country to country a little. It was very influenced by the ideal of the Antiquity. The symmetry, moderateness and natural character are typical Renaissance elements. People with a high social status wore clothes made of brocade, velvet and silk. A popular motive was pomegranate. Renaissance clothing grows in volume from the 16th century. Major tones for the fashion were determined by Italy in these times.

The bourgeoisie was also inspired by the fashion of the Burgundy court in the 15th century. Dukes from Burgundy were ranked among the most powerful princes of Europe. Their court behavior was an expression of knight culture and formed fashion impulses, such as slim appearance of men.

Young men wore short doublets, old men, scholars and respectable men wore long coats. Among fashion accessories were popular pocket watch on chains, fans and decorative handkerchiefs. Men wore on their heads berets with feathers.

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.
