In our shop we have butted, zinc plated wedge rings and riveted chainmail rings for making hauberks, voiders, coifs and other chain mail parts. We sell flat and round rings that are riveted with round or wedge-shaped rivets.
The Celts or Gauls invented the chain mail hauberks. The Romans soon came to use hauberks as well and wore them all over the Roman Empire. Until the 15th century, hauberks, coifs and chainmail parts were mainly made from flat or round rings with round rivets. In the 15th century, hauberks and voiders were sometimes also made with wedge-shaped rivets. Especially in the region of Germany and the Netherlands. When the infantry and cavalry started to wear more plate armor, they used chainmail parts like the voiders and coifs to cover the spaces between the armor plates.
With butted chainmail rings you can make chainmail parts faster. A butted chainmail coif takes one evening to make. Butted hauberks seem lifelike, but are a cheaper alternative to the more expensive riveted ones. These are perfect for LARP and theater where body protection is not necessary. They are lightweight so you can wear them for hours on end, making them perfect for Medieval festivals and LARP events.
