Hail brave knight, the king calls you forth to commend your courage. The German Knight Steel Breastplate gleams before the assembly as you walk forward. This handmade, 16 gauge mild steel torso armour comes in three sizes. It has a polished finish. The medieval cuirass has a multiple piece construction. Each piece overlaps the one above it. First, there is a upper chest plate. On this upper chest plate, there is a strap on each side underneath the rounded cutouts for the arms. These straps cross over each other at the back and attach to the shoulders with buckles. Rolled edges adorn the curved cutouts for the arms and the rounded neckline. In addition, there are indented lines that accent the side curves.

Next, there is a plate that protects the torso. It has a top edge that curves into a point in the very center. There is a buckle on this point for attaching a gorget, not included. Raised ridges accent the plate near the top edge. Also, this torso plate has a strap that runs across the back horizontally. Finally, there are three fauld plates to protect the waist area while still allowing for mobility. Rivets attach the plates to each other. Add the German Knight Steel Breastplate to your medieval ensemble, especially for a reenactment.

    This is why I buy from medieval collectibles: Great costumer service, fast shipping, and amazing products such as this breastplate. At 5’8” with a chest circumference of approximately 37” (with padding) I couldn’t find a cuirass that would fit me without getting one custom made, so I decided to get this. I bought the medium size, and it actually fits me fairly well. I bent the sides in a bit to make it even better. It’s harder to make the shoulder straps cross each other (like the picture shows) then I would of thought. I think I’ll punch in some extra holes. Overall, this breastplate feels sturdy, both steel and leather, and looks awesome. I highly recommend this item. It’s exactly what I wanted. God bless.
