Product Description

Details

Back in Ancient Greece, Greek warriors wore the earliest form of cuirass to protect the torso from blows. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the wearing of rigid protection to protect the torso became scarce, with warriors preferring the manoeuvrability offered by chainmail. Towards the middle of the 14th Century, knights started to reinforce their chainmail with plate armour in the more vulnerable areas. By the start of the 15th Century they were pretty much completely encased in plate armour.

This 15th century-style cuirass is fabricated in 16 gauge steel and is built to withstand contact re-enactment. The breastplate (with an integral fauld) and backplate are joined by adjustable leather straps to fit a range of torso sizes.

Breastplate and backplate both measure 24" across

Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used on its manufacturing.
