The term helmet only appears in the 11th century and means head-armour. Around the 10th century the helmet was cone shaped and only had a nasal. The need to get better protection for the whole face led to the creation of a cylindrical helmet, which covered the whole head and only had slots for the eyes. Hence the carrier was hard to recognize. It seems that this caused the development of heraldry.
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.
