While you may remember to protect your torso from attack, it is equally important to protect your thighs as well. Wear the Blackened Ortwin Tassets. Made from 18 gauge steel, these tassets have a blackened finish and rolled edges. They come as a pair. Also, the tassets have buckles at the top for attaching to armour like the Ortwin Blackened Cuirass (MY101086), not included. Each tasset has two buckles. In addition, the tassets have a two-piece construction and an asymmetrical shape.
The top pieces of the tassets have the buckles. These pieces are rectangular with slightly rounded corners. Rivets connect the top pieces to the lower ones. Then, the sides of the tassets come down with a very gentle curve. The outside edge is longer than the edge near the inner thigh. The inside edge then curves away from the inside. The bottom of the tassets have the two sides form a gentle point. This asymmetrical design gives the wearer greater mobility as it conforms better to the shape of the body. These Blackened Ortwin Tassets make a fantastic addition to any suit of armour for LARPing and cosplaying.
This item is handmade, therefore, it may vary slightly from what is shown above.
When purchasing armour pieces, in order for the pieces to be compatible, it is best to stay within the brand.
