May 27, 2013 - Groovy.
May 8, 2013 - For the most part, they used soft iron/mild steel like the kind you can get at the hardware store. They didn't use steel until around the mid 16th century due to bullets. Almost all plate armor, mail and plate throughout history, is shown paintings as blue or blue-purple. They did give them heat treatments and maybe gave them very thin casehardening, but they did use iron and mild steel. You could still give such coloration to iron or steel easy enough, with a small fire and a bucket of water
May 8, 2013 - Make your own.
May 8, 2013 - It wouldn't be as strong as tempered steel though. The heat treatment is where steel really gets its strength.
May 1, 2013 - If you can find a machine that can bend it cold without flattening and thinning out the steel, why not? They most certainly did cold forge when they could and would love to have a machine like that
May 1, 2013 - Actually, this isn't too far from the way they made theirs. They did cold forge a lot of it and they would probably have used modern methods if they could. They used soft iron/mild steel, but they did give heat treatments (notice the blue-purple color armor has in paintings) and that might case harden it to some degree.
Apr 25, 2013 - But of course.
Apr 24, 2013 - They mentioned an elaborate one for 20 000. I guess you meant to have the second one.
Apr 3, 2013 - At least this piece is for looks. If I wanted armor for combat, i'd want it handforged, that way I know it'd be quality armor. I don't know how to forge it myself, I do theoretically, but as far as experiance, I'm hoping for the chance. Only forge on my continent that I know of is three states away... 'sad face'
Mar 21, 2013 - Clearly you know much more about how armour is made than someone who makes armour for a living...
Feb 20, 2013 - This was stupid the right way to make armour is by using a forage to heat the metal then you use an anvil to shape the metal

*bends shit out of sheet and whacks with hammer*
Jan 27, 2013 - 3,000 dollars for a suit of armor, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Sep 25, 2012 - What is the name of the automatic hammer?
Sep 25, 2012 - Most people still don't. Even some of the most modern and technologic blacksmiths.
Sep 16, 2012 - I will be making my own now. Thank you how it's made.
