It is your duty as a paladin born of noble birth to provide for the less fortunate. Your family does not appreciate the needs of the poor, but you are a beacon of hope and a fighter for justice.
Dressed in your Splint Bracers and matching armour, you ride into town with much food for all to share. They look to you as a hero...and to be quite honest, you really do look the part.
Epic Armoury’s Splint Bracers are a pair of leather and metal arm and elbow guards. The 1mm thick steel couter is forged and shaped to provide the most protection to the entire elbow--including the sides thanks to an attached fan plate. The arm guards, or vambrace and rerebrace, are made from thick top-grain leather and a row of metal strips attached to the inside. With these three overlapping parts providing comfort and flexibility, they have great mobility on the battlefield.
These Splint Bracers feature incredible details like scalloped leather edging, and is covered with a studded and lined suede. Four leather straps are used to keep each of the Splint Bracers in place. Brass eyelets and canvas cords are used to attach to the forearm guard and upper arm guard. Worn on their own or with our matching Splint Shoulders and Poleyns, these Splint Bracers are sure to add some class to your costume.
- Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
- The term vambrace comes from the early 14th century
- Leather vambraces were sometimes reinforced by strips of metal or hard leather to create splint armour--much like this one!
