In the second half of the 15th century, the art of crafting plate armour reached its peak when it came to fusing form with function. Despite its weight, heavy body armour allows the warrior wearing it enough freedom of movement.
A typical part of plate armour suits, each of our Gothic plate arms is made up of a vambrace, couter, and rerebrace. The plate arms are made of 18 gauge steel and have leather straps to fasten the segments to each other. They also have straps with buckles to secure them to your arms. The strategic outer edges of the individual pieces of plate are flanged. These pieces are the ideal addition to our Gothic plate gauntlets, plate pauldrons, plate greaves and our Gothic breastplate.
