Today I’d like to introduce you to my friend, good person and a great master of his craft. A man, thanks to whom I had stayed in the movement and met most of my current friends.
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.
When I first began fighting I had no Idea what I was set to encounter. I needed protection, but there was such a huge selection of armor and armorers that at the end of a three month’s search I had made little progress towards picking a kit. I spent days going over pictures and videos posted by European armorers trying to figure out which set or time period really fit me the best. At first, I have to admit, I was very hesitant. Sending money to some company I had never heard of halfway across the world in hopes of getting some armor in return? There was certainly some worry that sending money overseas was going to disappear into a black hole. ArmorySmith proved me wrong.
Fierce German mercenary knight Götz von Berlichingen loved a good feud. As a soldier for hire in the early 1500s, he and his rogue crew of rabble-rousers fought on behalf of whichever Bavarian dukes and barons had the biggest beefs and the fattest wallets.
The ArtArmor Workshop – our name for more than 5 years, but unfortunately not mellifluent and difficult to remember. In addition to this, we transfered to the “.com” type of website instead of “com.ua” and our name was already taken. This is why we decided to move forward and to make a little re-branding.
