This medieval surgical kit is composed of eight hand-forged medical tools as partly already used by the ancient Romans but above all during the Middle Ages. The perfect gear for the portrayal of a healer, feldsher, doctor or surgeon at medieval reenactment and LARP events.
Each tool, namely an awl, a pair of scissors, hooks, a knife, a scalpel, tweezers and a bone saw, are forged from non-stainless steel. The whole set comes with a matching leather bag (approx. 14 x 23 cm).
In the Middle Ages, the medical profession was not exclusively practiced by learned physicians. Quite often, especially in times of war, artisan surgeons, feldshers and so-called barber surgeons would also perform surgery.
Important note: It goes without saying that this product is solely a prop to be used for historical re-enactment, LARP, theatrical performances, etc. This surgical kit is by no means suitable for people's treatment. We thus strongly advise against its practical use.
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.
