When you’re deciding on your battle equipment, the choice of the articulated plate armor is of the utmost importance. After all, the thigh piece of armor takes the most severe blows. You raise your shield over your head and there’s nothing left for your opponent to hit than your high leg armor. Therefore, you’d want to make sure you are protected and safe.
As you gain experience, you’ll learn to protect your steel plate legs also. However, even with good technique, it’s simply not possible not completely avoid strikes in that area during the full-contact medieval combat.
In buhurt, the enemy frequently uses halberds and axes, pressing you against the walls of the tiltyard and flying at you full speed. However, that’s not the only danger. Even when you have fallen down and no longer actively involved in the battle, you’re still exposed to possible threats. Either your teammate or foe may step or fall on you because they don’t see you. Therefore, yourself properly and order your leg armor from Forge of Svan.
We have often seen fighters who neglect foot protection when they are assembling their armor legs and don’t buy sabatons armor. Some beginner fighters might not even think about it. It’s understandable that everyone wants to save as much money as possible, but an unprotected foot is a potentially vulnerable area and, believe me, you can get hit there as well. So, sabatons armor is an important part of your full-leg armor.
The armor legs manufactured by the Forge of Svan are fully compliant with safety requirements as well as convenient and reliable. If you need lower leg armor, you will find these products on our website as well. Get these together with your upper leg armor so they arrive at the same time and get you prepared for the next battle.
Don’t delay, assemble your leg armor order right now.
