“The Dark Star” Cuirass
Blackened Spring Steel Breastplate
"The Dark Star" Spring Steel Cuirass
Blackened Breastplate Chest Armor
It’s hard to forget the Dark Star. It is not often that someone so beautiful and terrifying comes into your life, so she leaves quite an impact. She’s utterly magnetic, so enticing… it almost feels natural to fall into her orbit and become a part of her life. You’ll only stay as long as she wants you to, though – never forget that you’re not in control. Not for a second.
This stunning new breastplate is a part of our Dark Star collection - a set of armor made specifically for the female figure. We have crafted it with the curves of the female body in mind to create something that is beautiful, comfortable and unique. This cuirass is made from 1.2 mm spring steel, which is much thinner than it would be if it were crafted out of mild steel. This is because spring steel is significantly stronger than mild steel, thus it can be made much lighter. It has a blackened finish which gives it an eye-catching historical look as well as protecting it from environmental factors such as moisture and rust.
Borrowing the silhouette and forms of the XV century, this breastplate is made up of a single piece upper breastplate that covers the chest in rigid protection. Below that are five articulated lames that taper to fit the waist. Held together using sliding rivets and integral leather strapping, this method offers unrivaled comfort and range of motion. From the waist, three more lames flare out around the hips to create a set of faulds that offer a nearly complete unhindered motion. Covering the gaps between the faulds and the leg harness are a pair of tassets, attached to the bottom lame using buckles. This piece is complete with a matching articulated backplate, which is fantastically fitted and will keep you protected in style.
This is a luxury item with fine finishes, such as leather edging the whole breastplate. It is all held together with strong solid rivets, which will be able to take a beating and hold up in the heat of battle. Supple leather which is both nice to touch and robust enough to be strapped has been used throughout, finished with a medieval buckle.
While this breastplate can be made with a flat chest instead of that pictured, we cannot adjust this for a male body type. When choosing the size according to our size chart for this item, it is very important that you use the exact number with your padding already included, as this breastplate is very fitted.
Please, mind that no polishing option is available if you choose brassed spring steel!

IMPORTANT: To fit correctly and prevent injury, a suit of armour must be accurately built to the measurements of the person wearing it. PLEASE take all measurements over either the gambeson or under-padding you are planning to wear with this armour. The sole exception is for persons buying armour and padding together, ArmStreet will then make the proper size adjustments for the armour based on the measurements provided for the padding.
