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.
