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.

Helmet for sports with stylization to East.

Description

As it is known, European armor are most suitable for the historical medieval fighting. But what about armor of Kievan Rus or East? We made an effort to recreate such helmet stylization. The task was to make the helmet not more expensive then “Topfhelm Griffon” and provide the same protection. The most important thing this  model turned out to be even less expensive then bascinet “Griffon”. Also we have managed to accomplish great view. The breathing is still not perfect – we plan to “open” the mouth on the face. Pay attention to the fabric aventail. it can be ordered separately or sewn by yourself.

Examples of the fabric aventail.
