Advantages (according to our specialist)
- Interior is blackened against rust
- Perfect for decoration or LARP battles
- Cuirass and backplate
This beautiful cuirass with matching back plate is made in the beautiful style of the German Gothic (15th-16th century). The armor is richly decorated with Gothic patterns that correspond to decorations in manuscripts, and parallel ridges that reinforce the steel and at the same time look very elegant. The armor is 1.2 mm thick so it is not suitable for reenactment battles. You can wear it as a costume, during LARP battles or use it as decoration. You can then combine it as desired with a helmet and leg armor of your choice to create a full suit of armor. The harness consists of different plates and is very flexible and easy to wear. You can adjust it to size with the leather straps.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
Does this armour fit
Do you wear a gambeson: add 10-15 cm to your circumference.
Do you wear a gambeson and hauberk: Add 15-20 cm to your circumference.
Tip: Is this armour too big for you? You can easily add extra padding.
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.
