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 blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
