Basic Steel Legs Set
Main part of the XIV century was a time of numbers of experiments in plate armor developing. Though different materials were in use till the end of the XIV century, starting approximately from 1350 year steel and iron began to displace all of them. In Italy and especially in Germany blacksmiths created plenty of various shapes of arms and legs harness. Although in France and England, as far as we may take a conclusion by illustrations and documents of the second half of XIV century, almost all armors had similar forms. Thanks to close trading and war communications between the lead medieval European countries new styles of armor spread fast. So the main trends of armor evolution in medieval Europe were about the same.
Our Basic Steel Legs Set consists of elements that have been tested by many fighters during the years: Anatomical cuisses with knees and Front greaves type-2.
Cuisses protection is made of two parts: main plate that is shaped to cover the whole thigh and side plate. The upper part is elongated to give the maximum protection. Knee cap is joint with cuisse by the leather band. Such fixation is very flexible and provides high movability. Fan (wing) of the knee cap covers the inner part of your knee. The bottom line of the shin protection is arc shaped. It will fit almost all typical models of sabatons.
This legharness looks accurate and elegant. It has decorative elements made from thick leather. They also serve as additional protection to cover the connection between steel elements.
