A Cuirass is formed of a single piece of metal or composed of two or more pieces, which covers the torso of the wearer. The term cuirass commonly is understood to imply the complete body-armour, including both the breast and the back plates.
This is a simple and yet elegant piece of plate armour. Made from mild steel, this cuirass is manufactured by riveting together two separate pieces. It comes with a front and a back plate.
