This iron protective armor represents our reconstruction after a brass relief on the tomb slab from the grave Margrave of Meissen, Landgrave of Thuringia. The tomb slab was made in the first half of the 15th century and shows a suit of armour from the second half of the 14th Century. It is slightly stylized of the engraver and does not show exactly how the armour exactly looked like.
The trunk covers the front, back plate and front fauld of lames that could be unbuckled before riding. The front plate is reinforced with a second plate at the top. The wide pauldrons are finished with split hoops on the cuirass. The head is protected with a Hunsgugel-Bascinet with an aventail (mail collar).
This armour is completely hand –hammered from cold-rolled steel plate (gauge 1.3 and 1.5 mm). It comes from the workshop of a Czech armourer and is always custom-made allowing possible wishes of the customer.
William I, the one-eyed, (19 December 1343, Dresden – 9 February 1407) was Margrave of Meissen. His surname is related to the legend that Saint Benno appeared to him because of his disputes with the Church in a dream and he had an eye gouged out.

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.
