The historical belt is made of up to 4 mm thick smooth cowhide. The belt's length is 150 cm. If you pay a certain additional fee we will produce for you a longer belt to order. The belt's maximum production length is 210 cm. The belt's width is 4 cm. The belt is provided with hand-hammered wrought buckle that was modelled on a specimen from circa the 10th -11th century. The leather belt is connected to the wrought buckle with a leather strip. Along its entire edge the belt is decorated with an engraved groove.
Advice for the wearer of the leather belt with a twisted wrought buckle: If you untangle the leather strip you can replace the buckle with any buckle of the same width. Please specify your waist measure in your order. Based on this information we will cut holes in your belt to secure that it fits well. Otherwise the first hole is cut out at the length corresponding to the waist measure of 90 cm.

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.
