The baldric was also used to carry heavy burdens, such as the drum. However most often weapons (sword, rapier, smallsword) would be hung on it. The baldric for a smallsword or rapier is made of up to 3 mm thick cowhide. It is hung on the shoulder and worn diagonally across the chest. The length of the carrying strap can be shortened or extended via a robust buckle.Along its entire length the baldric is decorated with silvery lace that is sewn onto the leather part of the baldric. Loops used to attach a rapier scabbard are threaded through the bottom widened part of the baldric. The maximum length of the carrying strap is 160 cm. At your request we can produce longer straps.
Besides the colour shown in the picture the baldric is available in other colours: see the choice of colour.

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.
