Since ancient times was nothing so important for a warrior as his shield! It protected the warrior against long range weapons like bows or crossbows. Equally indispensable was the shield at close combats. Every warrior strove to prevent his sword from damage and hence fenced the enemy’s blows with the shield whenever possible. This is a fact that is often forgotten at medieval stage combats!
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.
