Our company "Forge of Svan" was founded in 2004.And from its early beginning the main goal of our armory stays the same - manufacturing of high quality equipment for medieval tournaments and buhurts. During these years we got a huge experience in producing real and functional armor made of mild steel, tempered spring steel, titanium. We see an importance of development of this sport well known as medieval full contact battle. This is the reason we take part in sponsoring and organising of many HMB and IMCF tournaments in different countries inside the

There's no so much information about specific technologies of plate armor craftsmanship. But still we have different sources of that time such as Illuminated manuscripts, medieval illustrations where we can see a craftsman doing his work, descriptions of specific forging tools.
The modern full contact sword fighting, whether by IMCF, HMB or SCA rules, is different from medieval tournaments or stunt performances of popular movies. This aspect is of fundamental for understanding what equipment you need. The use of improperly chosen armor, or insufficient attention to material selection can lead to injuries.
