This pistol with flint-lock has fully movable mechanical parts. It does not fire and is for decoration only. There is an engraved inscriprion on the barrel: Joseph Kirshner 1807.
Pistol grip and body are made of a faithful imitation wood (indistinguishable from wood with the eye). The metal parts are made of metal zamak (alloy of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper).
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.
