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.

Three-fingered gauntlets for reenactment and HEMA.

Three-fingered gauntlets for reenactment and HEMA.

Description

The cuff of the plate gauntlets “Alamercer” is based on the German mittens of the 15th century. The three-finger system was borrowed from other medieval images. Due to the fingers being separate, the weapon is easy to hold, the ring finger and the pinkey are more moveable. The long cuff will restrict the movement a bit though. The gauntlets are not recommended for the one-haded weapon.
