You march towards the river to meet the enemy before they attack the kingdom. You are ready with armour like the German Knight 3/4 Steel Leg Armor. Made from 16 gauge mild steel, this leg armour comes as a set of two. They have a polished finish and secure to the legs with three sets of straps. The steel armour consists of cuisses attached to polyens. The polyens have a main piece that covers the front of the knee. There is an additional piece below the knee that covers a portion of the lower leg. Also, there are round fins for protecting the outside of the knees. These pieces articulate for greater mobility.

Next, the cuisses feature a two-piece design. The main piece on each leg armour connects to the polyens. This piece has an inverted scalloped top edge. This edge is higher on the outside of the thighs. There are additional plates that sit higher on the thigh and behind the main thigh plates. Riveting attaches the pieces of armor together. Riveting also attaches the top plates to leather strips. These leather strips each have four holes for attaching to other armour pieces, not included. The pieces below the knee plates have a vertical line of holes that also help to attach other pieces of armour. Finally, the streamlined look of the leg armour works with a variety of medieval characters. The German Knight 3/4 Steel Leg Armor is ideal for reenactments, cosplay events, and stage fighting.

As this item is crafted by hand, slight variations in color and detail may occur.

    I almost gave these 4 stars. Many of the bolts were significantly rusted on the inside, and a couple were done a little sloppily. Thank God for my rust eraser! On the inside of the hinge for the lamination is what appears to be a modern company name, which I would rather not have. Now let’s talk about some good things. They look awesome! The curved edges look great. They definitely match the rest of my German set. All the leatherwork is done vary well, with nice and thick straps. Sadly, the pin holes are not big enough to work with the Classic Knight Steel Greaves, which is a shame since they are both House of Warfare. That should be fixable though. In the end, the biggest problem was the rusty bolts, but I will not be giving four stars just for that. “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:19-21. God bless.
