In the latter half of the 13th century, steel armour for covering the elbows and knees started to become more common. The 13th Century Medieval Elbow Cops offer a classic look ideal for matching 1250-1350 armour styles. The steel couters possess a smooth, rounded look. The elbow armour looks great paired with gauntlets, bracers, and other pieces. The steel elbow cops are lined with cotton canvas for increased comfort, and leather straps buckle them securely in place. The medieval couters work well for LARP events and historical re-enactments!
