Overview


Greaves are designed to protect the lower leg from the cut of a sword or the vicious kicking that occurred during battle. Although worn by many Roman units, greaves were not worn by all. Our replica steel greaves are based on patterns pictured in the reliefs on Trajan's Column in Rome. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts of 18 gauge steel, they feature an articulated knee piece for extra protection.  Can be tied with leather laces or straps of your choice for a custom look.
  • L: 18 3/4"
  • W: 8 3/4"
  • Bend: 5 1/2"

As Michael has noted, the brass rings on these greaves are the weak point in this design. At 8 3/4" wide they are a wide fit. All armour was worn with some sort of padding underneath to help absorb the shock of blows. These greaves do not include padding. Adding padding will improve fit and comfort.
