Fantasy theme gave a significant push for hobbys in one way or another connected with fencing and armor developing. Of course we can not ingnore this direction. In general, if you want to collect the most realistic fantasy armor - we are at your service! Especially since our armor has a nice design and you can create the necessary image with it.

Part of our armor elements are also suitable for HEMA. But in the future we plan to develop mittens, elbows, knees, etc specially for this direction. Part of our armor elements are also suitable for HEMA. But in the future we plan to develop specially for this discipline mittens, elbows, knees, etc. This direction of fencing is based on medieval fencing books (training books) and special very flexible and light swords are used here.

In fighting stylization, we first of all provide protection and convenience. When developing such armor, we combine the existing elements and parts of the medieval armor existing separately, but in close regions and time frames.

In historical reconstruction, we try to maximally repeat the geometry of the example artifact. The difficulty is that often both the example and the artifact are located far from us. Therefore, such work requires considerable skill.

Description

JW3A90452222

Armet Griffon was developed by us on the basis of Italian sallet. Its main purpose – foot fights. If you want to use it in jousting, it needs additional padding to strengthen the visor and lessen the hole for vision. Instead of round holes we added vertical cutouts, the vision is better this way. Mostly, this is due to the fact that our brain perceives better a set of vertical continuous images. Armet has four buttons, two for the visor on each side. The thing is, that the button from the one side is not always safe and reliable and the visor can be opened from hits (on the photo-shoot there was only two buttons though). It also has support for the bottom visor. If you get a frontal hit it helps to hold the visor in its place without excess pressure on the buttons. On the bottom visor there are also leather straps for sewing the padding.

Armet – type of helmets of 15th -16th century, with double visor and protection for the neck. In the helmet’s structure spherical skull had solid back part and movable face and neck protection from the front and both sides on which the visor was lowered. Due to this construction the helmet provided great protection in jousting as well as in foot fight, but was quite expensive and affordable only to rich knights.
