This type of bracer is suitable for beginners as well as advanced bowmen. Its simple design corresponds to the era between the 2nd and 10th century. Dyed cowhide with thickness of up to 2 mm will secure protection of the sensitive part of the forearm whipped by the bowstring. The braceris fixed on the arm with leather laces. Edges at the places though which the leather laces are threaded are reinforced with a 2-4 mm thick leather extension. The bracer's length is 15 cm. This is its universal size.

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.
