Archaeologists find ancient artifacts during excavations in distant corners of the planet. They have significant differences, but thanks to hardening and unique processing, some things have been perfectly preserved to this day.
Axes have been used in various spheres of human life for many centuries. They are still involved in carpentry, wooden construction, hunting and fishing, even in everyday life. Their types are very diverse and differ not only in weight and purpose, with strikingly different configurations of blades, strikers and lugs, but also in composition and steel grades. In order for the product to retain its sharpness and serve for many years, the steel undergoes a special forging procedure, as a result of which the structure of the workpiece changes, discontinuities disappear, large crystals are crushed and it is compacted, due to this, the cutting edge keeps sharpening longer and is resistant to temperature fluctuations.
Comparing cleavers and halberds with swords, swords and checkers, it can be noted that the latter have always been perceived as something more than just cold weapons. At all times, they were some kind of confirmation of a military or state status, indicated a noble origin. Many sabers stored in museums around the world can be classified as works of art. In their manufacture, maximum attention was paid not only to forging and straightening, but also to the design of the guard, handle and case. They could be engraved with inscriptions, hieroglyphs or family coats of arms, and the hilts were strewn with gems. Gold and silver were used for premium and gift samples.
Weapon forging is a delicate and labor-intensive business
It consists of several stages: purification of iron from various impurities, forge welding of metal layers, creation of the blade itself, formation of a shape, production of a shaft and a shank. In the process of sealing the point, the geometry of the center of gravity is set, its thickness at the base of the handle and at the sharp part of the blade. After that, heating, tempering and hardening are carried out. In subsequent stages, the blacksmith makes a cross, a head and a handle. The end is the scabbard, which can be made of any material, combined with leather and precious stones.
