Italian style spaulders (also called “narrow spaulders”) from the late XV century.
Our Narrow Spaulders are based on the armor of Kaspar of Frundsberg which is preserved in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Wien, Austria. Our Narrow Spaulders consist of 3 narrow bicep plates, a shoulder cup and a long bicep plate which extends to the elbow. This construction provides full bicep coverage. Each plate is attached to the next lowest segment with rivets that whose holes are slightly enlarged in order to make the spaulders flexible and articulated. Additionally, a leather strap is riveted on the inside of spaulders which eliminates gaps between the steel plates.
Our Narrow Spaulders are equipped with leather points with holes so that they can be easily attached to arming points on your gambeson. The long bicep plate has two holes to attach elbow caps or as additional tie-on point with your gambeson. Narrow Spaulders are battle ready and can be used for full contact medieval combat in both HMB and IMCF rulesets.
Please note, that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
