3-Plate Greaves Type-2
Segmented plate greaves were commonly used during the XIV century. In some old English manuscripts, they also called “schynbalds”. But the French word “greaves” or “demigreaves” eventually displaced it as the common name for this piece of equipment.
Shin protection was affixed to quilted padded stockings. As mentioned before, this type of armor saw large scale usage in the XIV century. Sometimes greaves were even mentioned in XV century manuscripts.
This model of shin protection consists of three anatomically formed plates. Thanks to smart construction there’s no gap between the steel plates. The shin is completely covered and protected from impacts. It’s a good budget choice compared to classic closed greaves. Our 3-Plate Greaves Type-2 are equipped with two leather straps and steel buckles. There are two drilled holes on the top of the front plate so that they could be affixed to a legharness. This armor can be made from mild steel, stainless steel, tempered steel, or titanium.
3-Plate Greaves Type-2 are suitable for use inHMB/IMCF/WMFC buhurt full contact medieval combat.
Please note that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
