These couters are based on historical originals of Milanese origin from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Originals can be seen in for example Castel Coira. Armor from Milan was worn all voer Europe during this period and was known for its good quality. These couters protect the elbows and part of the upper and lower arm. They have raised edges to deflect blows of weapons. You can fasten the armor securely to your arm with the leather strap. Holes have been made at the level of the elbow and laces are included to tie the couters to your doublet, gambeson, bracers or other armor.

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

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

Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.

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.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result."
