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.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.

De aventail voldoet aan de verwachtingen. Ook het op de helm zetten ging relatief makkelijk, de gaten moesten zelf in het leer worden gemaakt maar zo ziet ie dan wel zoals je hem graag wilt hebben. Aan de voorkant had hij voor mij wat hoger mogen zijn (ook kijkende naar diverse afbeeldingen) maar dat is op te lossen met een paar rijden extra mailien. Een mooi winter klusje ;-)
