Leather Chamfrons

Do you often attend the historical battle re-enactments on horseback? Sword and horse were parts of equipment of every medieval knight. Knight and horse needed some armour to protect them against injuries. Also horse’s head had to be protected among other things. Therefore leather chamfrons were invented.

Horse’s armour and chamfrons (protection of horse’s head) were used already in ancient Greece. They were made from leather until the 12th century, and then were replaced by plate armour. Shape of chamfrons was almost unchanged. Chamfrons were outdated and unnecessary in the 17th century. Therefore, especially lavishly decorated horse’s armour were made and were used only for festive occasions.

Our equipment for horses (leather chamfrons included) can be used during various historical battle re-enactments, theatre performances, film screenings and other historical events. Don’t hesitate to choose the right chamfron for your horse!

Besides leather chamfrons you will find here also next necessary equipment for medieval knights and their horses: beautiful caparisons, horsemen armour, horsemen weapons, riding boots or whips.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Why you cannot deliver swords or daggers to Switzerland?

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.
