Medieval Arm armour
Articulated spring steel arm harness
Splinted arms with articulated elbow
In the medieval period high quality steel was an expensive resource, and metalwork was significantly time consuming and required advanced skills not every village possessed a delegate of. Thereby start-up kits for a rookie soldier often excluded limbs protection in favor of helmet and a good sword. The middle ages arm armor evolved from simple thick leather cuff bracers to plate armour thoughtfully shaped, richly decorated and complemented with functional extras such as besagew or folded edges aimed to change the direction of enemy blows.
Materials used for production: natural leather; mild or stainless steel; etched or embossed ornaments; brass decorations; solid rivets and reliable fittings.
