Helmets are produced from the plate with thickness 1,2 – 1,5mm. That is enought for the safety of todays swordsman head. Sometimes we can meet with the demand of production of helmet with thickness 2mm or 3mm – but it totally insane. We are able to produce such kind of helmet but tell us who sould wear this. The weight of that helmet would multiple exceeded the weight of original. For the comparison – original helmets were usually produced from material with thickness 0,8mm. And they had also the sharp weapons – we have only blunt ones. One more think to mention about the production of helmets. It is padding inside the helmet. We produce (allmost) all the helmets with leather padding but nevertheless we recommend to wear the cap inside. Only by this way you can reach the perfect condition of wearing of the helmets. For the imagination you can see here the orignal padding under the tournament helmet (it was weared extra, it is not part of helmet).
are made from iron deep-drawing plates, formed by cold forging. Materials of thickness from 1 to 1.3 mm
(19 - 18 gauge) are processed.
Materials of 1.5 mm (16 gauge) or wider are warm-worked by forging in furnace.
Hard couplings are riveted, flame welded or overlapped and worked in (with more difficult products).
Rivets are spaced with natural leather and mats.
Movable couplings are a system of grooves and rivets, springiness of couplings is provided by the system of straps.
Parts of the set are coupled with the system of straps, splits and pawls.
Inner parts are on request upholstered with natural materials.
Crossbows and bolts
Materials: Tiller - oak, beech, maple (depends on availability, can not be chosen)
Surface: colorated varnish, top protective layer from bees-wax
Standard metal parts:
trigger: steel (8 x 8 mm, warm-formed)
stirrup: steel (18 x 3 to 20 x 5 mm)
all metal parts are blackened
Bow: threelayers laminate spring with lengthwayes oriented fibre
Bowstring: natural fibre imbued with bees-wax, middle bandage from synthetic fibre
All other bandages are from natural fibres, penetrated with the mixture from bees-wax
Bolts for crossbows:
Shaft turned out from beech wood, lengthways cutted and inserted stabilizator
sportbolt: cylindrical heat
warbolt: hammered heat
parchment from goat's leather
morded and imbued with bees-wax
shields are made from iron plates that are cold-forged, the reverse side is covered with felt; grips and
pommels are made from metal, natural leather or from their combination. Forging is made with rivets and
Shields for decoration are made from the metal plate of the thickness 1,5 mm. They have a peg for hanging on the walls.
Shields for fighting are from the metal plate of the thickness 2,0 mm.
Painting of shields and long-shields is made with water diluting ecological colors. Instead of SH0018a,b is the painting sprayed on the shield and the hand finished.
blades are made from spring steel class DIN 54 SiCr 60, they are sharpened and polished by hand. Tempered
on such a temper which provides enough springiness and persistence required for fighting.
Hilts are made from hard wood (beech, oak, and ash) by pasting two halves with natural glue. The knit is made from iron wire coiled into a bunch or from copper or brass wire or from their combination. Alternatively the knit can be made from leather tape. Ending knits of hilts are made from iron rings.
Pommels and crossguards are made from steel or brass. Steel class DIN Ck 55.
