History of forging

The first signs of metalworking date back to 4500 BC, when the Sumerians laid the foundations for metallurgy as we still know it today. Metal forming by using pressure and heat experienced an unusual revival in the dark Middle Ages. Almost all progress stood still, but metal forging became enormously popular. Mainly due to the demand for weapons due to the large number of wars that were fought in that time.

Ornamental forging

The Romans had even dedicated gods to the forgery. The most well known is Vulcanus. Besides weapons, the ornamental forgery was also growing in popularity. These objects were not only functional but also beautiful to see and gave status to the owner. From this the silver and goldsmith became real professions.

Steel and iron meteorites

The forgery offered here is traditionally forged in fire and finished by hand so that each piece has a unique character. Steel and even iron meteorites are used to make these decorative objects.
