Medieval Arm Protection with Couters, 14th. c., 1.6 mm Steel

Medieval Arm Protection, 14th. c.,

Couters with Vambraces and Rerebraces, 1.6 mm Steel

The arm protection consists of a couter or cowter (also known as an elbow cop), a two-piece (hinged) tubular vambrace or lower cannon for the forearm and a short, gutter-shaped rerebrace or upper cannon for the upper arm, all connected together by two sliding plates or lames that allow for proper freedom of movement. At the back, each arm is equipped with three adjustable leather straps with brass buckles for a comfortable, custom fit. An additional leather strap with buckle is riveted onto the upper edge of the rerebrace for proper attachment to a shoulder piece (pauldron) or a gambeson.

Equally suited for historical re-enactment, LARP or costuming, these articulated armguards are ideal for late medieval and Renaissance settings and will make your portrayal of a proud knight just perfect!
