Wayward Knight Arm and Pauldron
XIV-XVc. pauldrons and arm protection
“The Wayward Knight” Arm Harness and Pauldron Set
XIV-XV century pauldrons and anatomically shaped arm protection
Are they lost, or just wandering? Perhaps they have been cast out, or maybe they’re exactly where they want to be. The Wayward Knight is always ready to jump to battle at a moment's notice and serves no lord. Not anymore.
The Wayward Knight is our brand new collection of XIV-XV century inspired armor that is aesthetically stunning and ready for combat. Battle-worn and dark, this collection also manages to be bright at the same time, promising you’ll stand out on the battlefield. Perfect for a lost knight or man-at-arms, we feel that this is a versatile set that will suit a variety of different characters. If you’re put off by the blackened steel – don’t worry! We can also finish it without the hammered weathering or in just plain mild steel or stainless. If you’re opting for un-blackened, we can do both satin and mirror polishing, it’s up to you!
This set is for full arm protection, including pauldrons. Both the pauldrons and the arm harness have a handy leather tab that can be used to easily lace the armor onto your gambeson or arming jacket. They both close around your arm with leather straps and beautiful cast brass buckles, ensuring that they’ll stay in place as you move with combat.
The pauldrons consist of a central piece, followed by three lames, all attached with quality leather straps that ensure comfortable articulation. A floating rondel/ besegew is also attached, sitting in front of your armpit and allowing for a decent amount of protection through a large range of movement. These pauldrons are inspired by the XIV century, and though they don’t come from any particular historical example, they will look perfect next to any armor from the XIV-XV century.
The arm harness is much the same as the pauldrons in style: inspired by central European armor, they will look fantastic with any other armor from the aforementioned time periods. The harness has a upon-cannons that connect with a leather strap, a fully articulated elbow piece that moves smoothly, and an anatomically shaped connected bracer that looks fantastic and is very comfortable. The elbows are further protected by a large fan, that keeps the inside of your arm nice and safe.
The dark tone of the Wayward Knight armor is achieved through chemical blackening, a new process we have developed and refined in our workshop over the last few months. This creates a beautiful color and makes the steel more protected from deep, structural rust. Keep in mind that this process will attract more surface rust, however, and should be taken care of appropriately. We have accented the darkened mild steel with blackened brass edging, which really outlines the whole aesthetic and makes this look both noble and edgy.
