These closed greaves consist of shin and calf plates. They are connected with hinges on the outer sides and are closed by means of leather straps with brass buckles. You can connect the greaves with poleyns (knee guards) by means of the pegs up on the shin plates.
These greaves are compatible with all Marshal Historical leg armour.
They are made from 1,6mm carbon steel (gauge 16), the actual gauge of plate may vary due to the handcrafted way of production.
Made by Marshal Historical
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
