“The Dark Star” Spring Steel Gorget

Blackened neck protection

A dance with the Dark Star is like no other. It usually involves a sword and a dagger or two, and you’re lucky to leave with your life. She isn’t one of the most renowned duelists in the kingdom for nothing, after all. So go, fall into her orbit, and see if you can dance that dance… just remember that I warned you.

The “Dark Star” collection is made from an amazingly strong material: spring steel. This is the first result of much experimentation with this new material, and we have found that we can make armor much thinner than we can with mild steel, thus being able to produce items that are much lighter. This collection was created with the female figure in mind. The whole collection is completed with a beautiful blackened finish, which gives it a rich, darkened tone, as well as protecting the whole thing from rust and other environmental factors.

This gorget is loosely inspired by the late XV century, though you can see some inspiration from the Gothic period. It features some light fluting and a well-articulated neck, meaning it is easy for you to look around, be aware, and maintain your ease of movement as your neck is protected. At the front, the gorget dips down to provide decent coverage. The back of it covers the most vital parts of your upper back, before giving way to three thinner 1mm lames that provide you with that flexibility we mentioned earlier. The final layer on this gorget is the thin strip of other at the top, which will protect your chin from rubbing on steel. This is riveted on, which gives a nice little decorative touch to the top of the gorget as the brass rivets all adorn the top lame.

We have used high-quality leather on this piece, which you can see used on the stip along the top as well as behind all of the lames, creating that smooth neck articulation. All of the rivets used throughout are solid rivets, peened over washers, so they’re sure to stand the test of time and also resist rust much more than steel rivets would. This gorget closes with a hinge on one side, and a push button mechanism on the other, which is very robust and will protect you well in battle.
