The square piece, which is attached to the flap riveted to the helmet, is approx. 5-6 mm square. Since every helmet is slightly different, you should expect to have to rework (file, bend) the plume holder to fit well. Please note: This holder is for plumes with metal frames. We have similar holders with broader fork for the wooden framed plumes.
This plume holder is suitable a.o. for three Roman helmets of the brand Deepeeka:
It is used to attach the plume straight from back to front, as was customary for the Roman Optio soldier.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
