Wars were waged throughout the whole history. Weapons and armours were deployed both in defence and attack. Armourers still improved their technology and skills to offer a better protection and functionality of their products saving lives of the warriors. Our armours and shields are bought by European museums and re-enactment groups reconstructing battles. We hope that our products will satisfy your passion for historical arms and history.
Armours and shields were always an important part of the outfit of the warriors. Their purpose was to protect the fighters from injuries. The category Armour and shields is primarily dedicated to European knight armour. It contains both leather and (steel) plate armour.

You will discover here armour from different historical periods and different historical cultures. We offer Gothic, Renaissance, Antique or even Italian armour - representing the height of perfection of this handicraft. The range of various armour parts like gauntlets, chain mails, helmets, gambesons and shields is large.
Gambesons are padded defensive jackets. Wealthy warriors wore gambesons combined with mail or plate armour. Poor fighters wore gambesons as their one and only armour, sometimes reinforced with leather or chains.
Shield is a protective tool for combat action. It deflects strikes of an opponent. It is usually held in hand. Shields can be made of metal, wood and even plastic.

Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
