This coif is made from 16gauge high tensile steel. The high tensile steel provides a stronger resistance when receiving blows and makes the chainmail less likely to warp or have the rings pull open than when using mild steel. With a darker finish this piece looks great when worn on its own or under a helmet.
The butted mail style allows for a lower cost and with the use of high tensile wire is only a small difference in strength than riveted mail for a large drop in price.
