It is easy to guess why the name of Ballock dagger is related to. This kind of daggers were also called ´kidney dagger´ in the Victorian era, and seems to emerge in the early 14th century in which we can see some examples in effigies that suggests a knightly and warrior use. However, it´s known that with the time the Ballock Dagger were used by merchants, craftsmen and even peasants. The Ballock Dagger can be considered one of the kinds with a longer lifespan, appearing in the14th century and being in use yet in the 18th century by the Scots in form of phallic-like dirks.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
