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 medieval helmet. Tournament knight armet “Gaston”.
In this video, I make the medieval armet on based on two artifacts. They are the Italian sallet (which is what it says on the picture) and the visor which looks like it is german. Even though the source is the skull of the sallet, the right classification for this helmet – closed armet for the fight with clubs on foot. This is not historical reconstruction. Just a stylization of the helmet of the end of 15th century.
The double visor of the armet used in the Medieval war and not in the tournaments was quite a breakthrough. With the top visor lifted the knight could see, breathe and hear good with the small part of the head uncovered. The grate visor is great for sports knight tournaments. It provides good breathing and vision.
