This armor is based on originals from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Originals can be seen in Italian paintings, for example. This complete armor consists of vambraces, elbow cops and rerebraces. These armor pieces thus protect the outside of the entire arm. The armor pieces are connected to each other with leather straps and rivets. The elbow cop is equipped with a roundel to also protect the inside of the elbow against impacts. You can fasten the armor securely with the leather straps. The rerebrace has a leather flap with holes so that you can tie it to your doublet, gambeson or cuirass with laces.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
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.
This armour is 1 mm thick and suitable for LARP battles, costumes and cosplay.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
