This greave is based on a vambrace found in Valsgärde. Similar protection was possibly also worn for the legs, and was used in early medieval Scandinavia, possibly in the whole of Northern Europe.

The greave is made from 2 mm thick steel plates, which are connected via leather straps. They are 43,5 cm long and are easily adjustable.

Does this leg armour fit?
When you don't wear extra padding: Measure the width of your leg.
When you wear padding: Add 2,5 cm to your leg width.
When you wear chainmail chausses: Add 0,5 cm to your leg width.
Tip: Is this armour too big for you? You can easily add extra padding.

How do I easily measure the width of my arm/leg?
Place your arm/leg between two straight objects (e.g. books). Measure the distance between both objects, this equals the width of your arm or leg.

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.

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

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



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.
