The battle has lasted for three long days and the blood from both sides runs knee deep. You are exhausted and are unsure how much longer you can last when you see a break in the front lines. The enemy is making a last desperate push.

You are caught in front of their wave, and you feel the awful force of an enemy sword slash across your gut. Your Chainmail stops the blade from cutting, buying you the time to fight back and slay your foe.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Chainmail shirt is a flexible mail armour shirt made from linked and riveted mild steel rings. The mail covers the body from the shoulder to the waist, and has long sleeves protecting the arms to the wrists. Each ring interlocks with four other rings in a 4-in-1 design, and is also riveted to cope with additional stress. This shirt’s construction is built to last for a long time, but does add significant weight at 2.66 kg.

Wear this Chainmail by sliding it down over your head like a shirt, kept in place over your gambeson with a belt. Made of 1.6 mm mild steel, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in sizes Large and X-Large.

Epic Armoury metal works products should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. All our metal armours contain leather parts that need regular maintenance using leather-care products to keep the leather from drying out.

Cleaning

If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.

After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

Rust-Prevention and Removal

Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.

Leather Straps and Fittings

Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
