This gorget is based on originals from the sixteenth century. It provides protection to the neck, neck and shoulders. You can combine it perfectly with a cuirass and backplate. The gorget has a basic design without decorations, so you can combine it well with many different armor plate styles or with different costumes. You can close the gorget with a pin construction on one side and a strap on the other. It also has leather pieces at the ends, specially for fastening the gorget with laces through the holes in your gambeson or acketon.

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.
