Utter crap ... This is not viking .. its VALSGARDE 8, and a poor copy at that.. its spraypainted in the back, and its very clearly mde aith modern smithing tools. Hand forged seems to be a loose statement - this looks like its been through machine hammer with set-downs. Real value of this is cost of steel + 15 minutes of work where most of it is the grinding of the edges... cheap, bad, incorrect to both time period and shape; made for fantasy wanna be viking LARPS who will swallow anything tha has the word VIKING ... for anyone who are more than 0% interested in historical acuracy - stay off!! Now lets see how long this comment will stay here.. im guessing just as long as its historical accuracy .. 0 !

REAKCE NA 1 (Rubu Kas): I give Rubu Kas's revue 1 star. They could have been past down from my grandfather. In my persona storey my grandfather was buried at Valsgarde but not with his armor because my father need it to avenge his death. My father then past it down to me. Anyway itis a matter of saftey and as an eleet Viking Warrior, I would be able to afford these.

REAKCE NA 2 (Thorgar the Crooked): I would recommend a leather lamellar to go with this and black leather studded armguards, or you be the laughing stock of your bloodthirsty winged helmet warrior brothers.

oh you cute little LARPer .. thats why viking as written "viking" ( its called sarcasm) ... Look .. noone is debating the Valsgarde find ... that however, is from the MIGRATION period .. not the viking period... this armor theyre selling here would also absolutely have a defensive value...what i am saying is that this particular arm protection is incorrectly dated, incorrectly made and incorrectly marketed... inaccrate - everything.. hence .. usable only for Live Action Role Players who havent the interest of actually delving into the historical accuracy of vikings would find this OK .. ask anyone who are reenactors, who read the history, who understands the history and who are interested in the historical accuracy - and you will see...

REAKCE NA 6 (Rubu Kas): Wikipedia says taht the Migration Period went to 800 AD so it could easily have been my grandfathers or his granfathers past down. So you are being iaccrate and everything. I am interested in the histerical accuracy which is why i portray an eleet viking warrior which should tell you what kind of person i am.

My Viking brothers and me all bought these to go with our horned Valsgarde Helms and fur cloaks. We have not lost any legs yet, despite fighting of a mighty horde of Orcs and Goblins wielding latex swords. Very sturdy, look good worn over Baggy Rus pants/tracky bottoms.
