Product information "Persian Greaves"

You heard stories about the Battle of Troy and the legendary fighters who took part. When you learned the greatest soldier of them all was defeated due to a weak heel, you decided it was time to get a little leg protection of your own.

Your Persian Greaves protect some of your weakest spots, keeping you fit for battle. You’ll learn from the mistakes of legends...maybe one day you’ll become a legend, yourself.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Polished Steel Persian Greaves is a set of steel leg protection designed to protect the shins and calves. Formed to the shin and connected by chainmail, these greaves are designed to sit comfortably over the shins while leaving room for poleyns to cover the kneecaps. They reach from below the knee and narrow around the ankles, and are secured with two adjustable top-grain leather straps. The chainmail and back plate further protect the calves, giving your legs full coverage.

The Persian Greaves are designed to match Epic Armoury’s Roman collection, but can be mixed and matched to fit your character’s unique costume. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
