Overview


The Imperial city of Augsburg was renowned for armor makers, which included the Helmschmied family and master armorer Lorenz. This suit is reminiscent of a 16th century design, which would have been in the style manufactured by that illustrious foundry. Though this suit is not made to be worn, it is still maintains all the esthetic beauty of a full harness of armor.

Handmade of 18 gauge mild steel, this imposing suit is one of the most affordable we have ever offered. The artisans of Windlass Steelcrafts have worked on these suit and have upgraded the look, making these better than most of the more affordable armors on the market. Comes complete with a heavy, museum quality wooded pedestal base, decorative waist skirt and complete wooden interior form. The helmet is able to accept up to three decorative plumes (sold separately). FREE standard US shipping - A $300 Value! Weighs 80 lbs. with stand and will be shipped motor carrier ground.

I bought this suit a little under a year ago in the hopes that I could wear it around as a costume from time to time.  I guess I didnt read the fine print, because this thing is definitely just a decorative peice- it looks nice on the outside, but its not designed to be worn.  There are inch long bolts that hold the breastplate together that stick straight into your shoulders and sides if you try and put it on.  The leg portions have no way of fastening themselves to your hips, and they pinch you if you bend your knee.  The arm parts dont even bend past 45 degrees and the gauntlets just hang loose with no way of attaching to your fingers.  I could go on but suffice it to say that its just a thing that looks nice to most people from a few feet away, but every time I look at it I just feel buyer’s remorse.
