Ukrainian Armour.

Going somewhat off topic here but my Christmas present from 'her indoors' arrived from the Ukraine this week:

 Handmade to measure in 12 gauge steel at very reasonable cost, these will join the other pieces of the 14th/15th century panoply already acquired. Theres some way to go yet before I'm fully 'cap a pie' but I've got enough now to start practicing some Fechtbuche moves without fear of serious harm.


  1. Very nice - the couters are very impressively done. Looking forward to seeing you in these; as well fully armored. Best, Dean

  2. Cheers Dean, once the foul weather has cleared here I'll break these out for a field test. Keep you posted.
    Regards HGA.
