We have created a faithful replica of the late XIV century arm harness found in Churburg Castle which consists of vambraces, elbow cops, rerebraces, (which cover the biceps) and articulation segments.
Our Churburg Arms are equipped with leather straps and steel buckles and are painted inside to prevent rusting. The vambraces are anatomically shaped and possess a “tulip” shape popular in Western Europe in the XIV and early XV centuries. The steel elbow cops are slightly pointed.
We would also like to draw your attention to the functional part of this armor: the sliding rivets on the top of the forearms that give you maximum range of motion. The bicep plate fits all models of shoulder protection. Our Churburg Arms are battle ready and can be used in historical medieval combat as governed by SCA, HMB, IMCF, and WMFC. They are suitable for both buhurts and duels.
Our Churburg Arms can be forged from tempered or stainless steel, or from titanium should you so desire. If you’re not sure what material is most suitable for you needs, please read: “What Armor Material is Best for Me?”
You can further enhance the visual cohesion of your new arm set with a Churburg Breastplate.
Please notice, that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
