These fully movable finger gauntlets are hand-hammered from carbon steel. The individual parts are connected with riveted joints. The thumb plates are attached to the gloves with small hinges. The first finger joints are protected with pyramid-shaped plates. The edge of the sleeve is folded. The fingertips of leather gloves are sewn to the fingertips of the gauntlets. About the palm of leather gloves lead reinforcing leather straps.
These gauntlets are equipped with firm leather gloves for welders. Since there is really much inner lining, they fit well from a hand size of about 8 ½. The fist gesture is only partially formable, since the back of the gauntlets is quite stiff, which is rather the advantage in battles / sword combats.
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.
