It was a logical evolution to include face protection in the helmet. There are several examples of artistic representations of conical skull helmets with facial plates. This one is based on the frescoaes for the church Romanesque portico of the Santa Maria de lo Real, in Sangüesa (Navarre, 44.5 kilometers from Pamplona). In the exterior archivolt can be seen medieval works including two men at arms. One of them is wearing a cabasset like this with a chhek-wide-visor.

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.
