Crusader Armour and Knights Armour
Are you looking for Crusader armour for both functionality and to provide you the best protection during the sword fight or re-enactment battle. Medieval Collectibles has both functional steel crusader armour and leather crusader armor. Our Crusader Knight armour comes in breastplates, bracers, greaves, paldrons, and arm armour. Many pieces of the armour have symbols of Templar Knights cross, Hospitalers cross and the Teutonic Knights cross on them. Knight armour is one of the most popluar types of armor used in movies, used in homes, and stage fighting and reenactment.
These gauntlets are made from genuine suede leather and are very comfortable and soft. Whether you do real sword reeancting or LARPing, if you want to avoid losing grip of your weapon due to sweaty hands, you'll need a good pair of gloves.
This suede leather garment has small 18 gauge steel plates rivited between the outer shell and the lining. This kind of construction made it easy enough for a soldier to make and repair his own armor without needing the high skill of an armorer.
The Complete Merc Armour Package will go a long way to making you look like a warrior fit for battle. And while it's not necessarily the armour of a true knight, it's definitely an effective set that will keep you safe and secure on the field of battle.
