Armor Kit “Black Knight”
Fantasy ribbed gorget and pauldrons set
Have a look and tremble, because here comes the most beloved set of armor of 2-in-1 kind, which is big with the customers of ours for almost 10 years! Imbued with its popularity, we decided to give it its dues, so we assigned it with a new perk name of “Black Knight”, arranged a photo shoot to update the pictures, and even produced a matching style arm armour so you can complete the set. But first things first.
So, this fantasy set includes all one needs to protect the shoulder joint, neck, and throat - king-size pauldrons with multiple segments and a gorget with standing collar. The pauldrons are provided with vertical plates designed to prevent the weapon blade from slipping to the neck when striking the shoulder. The swordbreakers are attached to the main cup by means of scalloped edges and rivets; they can be removed upon request to stick to historical accuracy. Above the main cup there is one, and below - four movable bands of plates added to protect the upper arm. There are leather buckled straps on the lower plate - adjust the fit and do not worry about fixation anymore. The axillary cavities are covered with fancy besegews, resembling gothic style armour with their ribs and pointed shape.
The gorget with stand-up collar provides excellent neck protection and structurally consists of two halves - front and back. The front plate has longitudinal stiffening ribs to increase its durability. The plates are connected with a rotary locking pin. Convenience is, there are metal loops on the upper plates of the pauldrons, which can also be placed onto the locking pin head, thereby attaching the pauldrons to the gorget.
Renewed “Black Knight” combat set looks severe and truly authentic, while all its elements of thought-out, ergonomic shape do well the shock absorption.
