This half armor is made after 16th-17th century originals. Cavalrymen in particular wore this type of half armor. They were armed with rapiers, sabers, lances, and wheellock pistols. Armor like this was worn during the Siege of Malta in 1565, during the Eighty Years 'War and the Battle of Grolle, during the Thirty Years' War and of course in Tudor England. Sometimes this type of armor was provided with arm and leg armor and the wearer exchanged his burgonet for an armet. This way you could adapt the armor for heavily armored shock troops. This half armor consists of pauldrons, gorget, tassets and burgonet. This harness can be well adjusted to size.

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.
