Differing from the shorted haubergeon, a hauberk features full sleeves and knee-length protection. The 48 Inch Mercenary Grade Mail Hauberk protects its wearer while still allowing the range of motion needed for battle. Butted mail is the most economical construction style of mail, as the cost of labor-intensive riveting is avoided. Butted mail has limited historical precedent but is fine for general costuming and role-playing where strict construction authenticity is not a requirement. It is not recommended for weapons-contact re-enactment as mild steel butted rings may be distorted by heavy weapons contact. The rings are formed from round section wire and have a 10 mm internal diameter. This item is crafted from 16 gauge mild steel. Construction is in the 4 in 1 pattern.
Care Instructions: This chainmail has a blackened finish. When not in use, store in a ventilated plastic tub in a warm, dry location.
