Mail voiders are sewn to an undergarment to protect the arms from gaps in the plate armor that occur there. The Count Grade Mail Voiders offer high-quality mail underarm protection to improve the fit and comfort of your armor. Wedge riveting like what is used in these voiders became popular in the 1300s and was used until the demise of mail. Alternating rows of solid punched rings and riveted rings predominated until late in the period, when all-riveted construction became more popular. This style of mail is well able to withstand supervised weapons-contact re-enactment. This item is crafted from 17 gauge mild steel. Construction is in the 4 in 1 pattern. This item includes voiders for both arms.
Care Instructions – This chainmail has a natural finish. The rings do not have a separate coating applied to the steel but are typically lightly blackened with heat to a medium gray color. This helps with corrosion issues, but it is recommended that mail with this finish be thoroughly coated with a silicon or rust-preventative spray, such as WD-40, when not in use and stored in a ventilated plastic tub in a warm, dry location.
