Gothic Full Arm Armor - Vambrace, Couter, Rerebrace 18G Carbon Steel Medieval Knight
By covering the entire arm with 18G plated carbon steel, a warrior can focus more on his offensive attacks with confidence of his defensive strengths. This pair of full arm armour will cover your upper arms (Rerebrace), forearms (Vambrace), elbows (Couter), and most of the wrists. Most essential about this Gothic set is how wide and large the Couter is. Wearing this is like having a small shield on each arm, and the surrounding fins help deflect attacks away from the body and absorb kinetic energy to disperse into the steel instead of your body.
This will encase both the upper arms and forearms 180 degrees around when tightened and fitted properly. Upper arm default minimum circumference with full coverage around is 13.8 inches (inner), and can be adjusted tighter or more loosely by flexion of the steel to exact fitment. Located at the top of the Rerebrace on each arm there are two holes which can be used to attach this armor to your steel Pauldrons or other shoulder armor.
This is a very well made set, sturdy enough for reasonable functional protection based upon historically accurate weaponry, costume, reenactment, and display. Despite having some rough edges here and there, each handmade piece is unique and may have slight differences between any two pieces. We recommend you wear cotton padding under this armor for comfort and absorption of kinetic energy.
