Crafting process, part II

Armour making takes much time and energy.

Let us show you some parts of one order, which our crafter hammers away now.


Helmet with lifting visor for fencing. This model is being made of stainless steel 2.0 mm. Such helmet will defend a head perfectly, and also will not rust in time.






Eye slit is about 1.8-2.0 cm. Such width meets SCA standards.

Holes on the visor allows free breathing during trainings or battles.






Closed hinged greaves of the XIV-XV centuryCold-rolled steel of 1.5 mm is used for this leg protection.


Measures for such closed greaves are to be taken over the padded protection. Then you can be sure, that your legs are protected good.






Knight gauntlets of the XIV-XV century with articulated fingers. Gauntlets are also made of cold-rolled steel 1.5 mm.

Steel "knuckles" are riveted to the firm natural leather. 










We leave spare leather edges, so customer could sew own leather gloves (on which plate gauntlets will be worn).




All these items can be made of another type of metal, or with brass rivets and colour of another leather. You just need to choose options, which you like more:)

Crafting process

Medieval armour in the modern world... How can it be made? Of what metal and with what tools?..

To answer these questions we decided to lift a veil and show some shoots of how armour is born in our forgery!  

We will publish such posts as visual demonstration of orders' making. And as exapmple of men's possibility to perform magic of steel!


Today, there is few photos of German full-plate armour of the XV century. It is being made of cold-rolled steel 1.0 mm.




Sharp edges and ribbed surface were typical for German armour in gothic style.





Armour will be decorated with brass strips.



To be continued...:)

Something for a head! But not helmets:)

Hi, friends!

We've already told you about costumes of the XV century Burgundia, but did not pay a lot of attention to hed-dresses. But it's worth to remember, that headwears are significant part of any medieval costume!

Well, today is time to talk about hennins, atours, beguins... What do these words means? You'll know it in new article "Men's and women's headwears in Burgundia, XV century".
