Cuirass of Landsknecht
Our Landsknecht Cuirass is a stylization of the late XV – early XVI century cuirass made by well-known armorer Kolman Helmschmid (1471–1532). This type of Renaissance armor would often be combined with a full arm harness and gorget and was called a “three quarter armor”.
The Landsknecht Cuirass is made in the Maximilian Style. It is decorated with parallel flutings. An imitation of braided cord goes around the neck and armpits. Our Landsknecht Cuirass consists of breastplate (French “plastron”), backplate (French “dossière”), skirt (great brayette) and movable tassettes. All parts are connected by durable leather straps and buckles.
Our Landsknecht Cuirass is historically accurate and can be used both for HMB and IMCF full armored combat. It is available in cold rolled steel (base option), tempered steel, stainless steel, or ultra-lightweight titanium.
Please note, that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
