Chainmail Chauses, Leg Protection, 6mm inner ring diameter, riveted and punched
The RM chain maille type is composed of small rings with an inner diameter of 6mm only. As per original finds, it is woven with alternate rows of riveted round rings (domed rivet heads) and punched flat rings. Both then and now, the extremely small inner ring diameter has made it possible to manufacture this particular chain mail out of 1mm steel without impairing its effectiveness, and thereby to achieve a weight reduction of about 30 - 35%.
RM chain maille
The common abbreviation for this particular weave is RM (Roman Mail), as it was favoured by the ancient Celts and Romans (Lorica Hamata). However, it remained in use throughout the ages and was commonly worn up to the late Middle Ages.
