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.
Forging of the plate leg armor in Kastenbrust style.
The armor in Kastenbrust style can be found on the medieval images. There is almost no armor of this style preserved to our days. Their recreation is only possible using medieval statues, bas-reliefs or images. There are a lot of them, which proves that this type of armor was widespread in Germany and Flanders in the first half of the 15th century.
Kastenbrust is translated from German as a “box chest”. Besides that, the angular shapes in general were specific for this type of armor. The knees, elbows, gauntlets were forged with a similar geometry.
