Be the first to review this product

Our Gothic back and breastplate with tassets is a typical part of a plate harness. It consists of a cuirass, has a movable fauld and culet, and comes with tassets. For even more wearing comfort, a rounded edge has been welded to the front part of the neck and it is flanged at the back. The same technique was applied to the armholes: they are also welded at the front and flanged at the back to avoid sharp edges at sensitive places. Features brass rivets for decoration.

Product Description

Details

In the second half of the 15th century, the art of crafting plate armour reached its peak when it came to fusing form with function. Despite its weight, heavy body armour allows the warrior wearing it enough freedom of movement.

Our Gothic back and breastplate with tassets is a typical part of a plate harness. It consists of a cuirass, has a movable fauld and culet, and comes with tassets. For even more wearing comfort, a rounded edge has been welded to the front part of the neck and it is flanged at the back. The same technique was applied to the armholes: they are also welded at the front and flanged at the back to avoid sharp edges at sensitive places. Features brass rivets for decoration.

Our German Gothic Back & Breastplates with Tassets has broad, stable leather straps with buckles to fasten the shoulders together and narrow leather straps at the bottom for connecting the other pieces.

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