Balthasar Cuirass

Balthasar Cuirass

SKU: 10013

Made of polished steel, the Balthasar Cuirass is an excellent piece of torso armour suitable for LARP use or for other historical reenactments. Both breastplate and back plate are included, connected at the shoulder and sides with adjustable leather straps and buckles. Spaulders can also be connected to the cuirass through attachments at its shoulders. Featuring stunning craftsmanship, the breastplate is made up of seven separate segments riveted together, a sturdy construction that still allows mobility due to the moving parts. The lower two segments of the cuirass are hinged, granting the wearer a suitable amount of flexibility. This piece of armour is intended to be worn over padding, such as a gambeson, for maximum comfort and safety.

Please be aware that this armour is handmade, and it can be thicker than listed here. As such, it is intended mainly for costuming, light reenactment, and LARP.
