German armor legs, years 1460-1500

Leg protection was always essential for cavalry regiments. They were This version of armor legs is based on an an original armor from south Germany. The armor is nowadays exhibited in museum “Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin”. These armor legs reflect the influence of Belgian and Austrian armourers on those in Germany. We admire especially the beautiful curved flutes and the complex harmony of all parts the armor legs consist. The lateral hinge system can be found also in the Valdemar’s VI armor preserved in the Royal Armouries or in the archduke and later emperor Maximilian’s I. armor.

The price hands down is great. The leg harness was very stiff so I re-riveted the armor and slightly shortened the thigh so it fit better. Very tempted to change out the buckles. If you're around the measurements of this armor and love the design you'll enjoy this.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

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.
