These arm guards are inspired by originals from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. They consist of a steel elbow copwith a roundel and leather guards for the lower and upper arm. The armor has a very luxurious and classy look! The elbow cop has a scalloped steel edge decorated with colored leather. The leather part of the arm guard is made of suede leather and has the luxurious appearance of velvet, this is also beautifully decorated with brass rivets. This armor can be perfectly combined with, for example, a brigandine, doublet or other armor pieces to complete your 15th-16th century costume. The armor consists of three overlapping parts, allowing an optimal freedom of movement. You can fasten the armor securely to your arm with leather straps. The parts can therefore also be removed and used individually. The elbow cop has laces to fasten it securely to the leather arm guards, but you can also combine them with other armor of your choice.

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.
