This armor is inspired by historical steel arm protection from the medieval Gothic period. It consists of couters designed to protect the elbows, with the raised edge to ward off blows. The couters are further extended with vambraces and a half-rerebrace. At the top and bottom and at the elbows you can fasten the armor with leather straps. The entire armor is reinforced and decorated with steel rivets and raised edges. This armor is 1 mm thick and suitable for LARP battles, theater, Cosplay and costumes.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
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.
