Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.
Maintenance & care
Remove rust from your chainmail by rubbing the rings together (just like when hand-washing clothes, but without water). The rings will grind together and the rust will come off.
