This is a reproduction of an early medieval lamellar armour, as worn for example by the Saxons, the Franks and the Vikings.
Finds from Visby and Birka (Sweden) have furnished evidence that this type of armour was popular with the (North) Germanic peoples.
The scales used here are modeled on the original pieces found in Birka.
Our lamellar armour is hand-crafted from approx. 430 steel scales.
The individual scales are tied together by means of thick leather cords. They are galvanised in order to ensure proper protection against corrosion.
Our lamellar armour can be expanded with our set of 25 steel scales for self-assembly (Product No. ULF-SC-01). However, these additional scales are not zinc-plated.
They are thus slightly different in colour and are not rust-proof.
- Material: approx. 430 zinc-plated steel scales, leather strings.
- Size: adjustable by means of straps and buckles, chest girth from approx. 104 cm to 122 cm.
- Can be expanded with our pack of 25 steel scales, Product No. ULF-SC-01.
- Dimensions of a scale (length/width/thickness): 97 x 22 x 1.1 mm.
- Weight: approx. 6.7 kg.
Shipping time: 7 to 14 Days.
