Every good Roman soldier or knight remembers to protect their shins. Wear the Classic Knight Steel Greaves and enhance your armour or costume. These 16 gauge, mild steel guards feature a conical shape and a polished finish. The bottoms of the guards have a curved shape for better mobility and ridges for the ankles. The edges are rounded with a hammered detail. Rivets decorate the edges and secure the leather straps for fastening the greaves. The top of each greave has a strap with two holes and a peg for attaching the greave to other armour as desired. It comes with laces. The tops have an assymetrical curved shape. They are ideal for historical reenactments, LARP or SCA events, and fantasy conventions.

Wow. These greaves are amazing! The steel work is superb, and the leather straps are thick. Being a slimmer man, I find most armour to be a little large on me and requiring some bending, but these look great. I wear them over Leopold Padded Greaves. The one problem I do have with them is the pin is too big to fit in the pinhole of the German Knight 3/4 Steel Leg Armour, which is a shame, since they are both made by House of Warfare. It should be noted that mine did not come with the leather string that it shows in the picture, not that I mind. I am vary happy with them. House of Warfare makes the best mass manufactured armour in my opinion, and from what I have seen so far, all there armour uses 16 gauge steel or has the option to be 16 gauge, and there straps are always thick.
