Cuirass “The King's Guard”

Churburg breastplate, late 14th c.

One more piece of our “The King's Guard” armor kit. This cuirass is made of 16 ga stainless steel. The 9-segments piece includes plackart combined with breastplate and side plates covering the front, sides, and lower part of the back. It is one of few types of plate body armour which allows significant size adjustment thanks to flexible side elements and leather straps.

Cuirass is decorated with etching on stainless and etched brass borders as well.

Stainless steel fauld covered with leather is not included, but available in store.

    Are you able to have the etching just on the plate but not the brass borders?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Yes, of couse, please simply leave this comment to your order at the checkout. 

  • Jonathan 30 of October 2019:

    How much does this cuirass weigh?

    ArmStreet team:

    Hi Jonathan! It weights about 7 kg.

  • Daryl 16 of September 2019:

    Does this also have the leather straps that connect to the pauldrons or is that the fauld?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Daryl, yes there are leather straps for pauldrons, they are shown on the pictures. 

  • Robert 17 of July 2019:

    I was curious if this could be made out of mild steel and blackened to match the wayward knight set?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Robert, yes it can be made in mild steel and blackened but there will be no etching on such cuirass, unfortunately. 

  • Tristan 05 of September 2018:

    How much does this armor weigh?

    Hi Tristan! This cuirass weights 8 kg. 

  • Frankie Wang 18 of July 2016:

    Is it possible to make the width around the armpit more "narrower"? I have a really small chest 34", and will probably become 38 or 40" with gambeson.

    ArmStreet team:

    Please, do not worry, we`ll make the cuirass according to your measurements :-) Please note, that the measurements are needed to be taken over a gambeson.

  • Robert 11 of July 2015:

    is it possible to just order the chest plate without the etching and gold trimming?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Robert, yes it is possible.

    I recently bought this cuirass and let me tell you, it is by far the best I have ever seen and worn in my life of owning and wearing armour. The size is perfect, they made it after my measurements precisely. The shape of the cuirass is exactly like it should be, it is very curved by the lower half, just like you see on historical examples. This means that you can breath in and out without your chest touching the breastplate, and any strikes that hit you won't cause the breastplate to hit your ribcage. It feels lightweight, and when it rests on your natural waist, it feels almost weightless as it does not rest on your shoulders. The plates by the armpits have enough room for me to move my arms towards each other and across my chest, so much that I can fully extend my arms and still put my hands together. I really could not be more happy than I am with this product, it is a work of art both in function and aesthetic. I highly recommend the fauld that goes with this set, as it complements the breastplate perfectly.

    Review time, is it pretty, very. Will it protect you, very well, for the SCA you won't find something that protects you this well is at light as it is. SCA legality, its completely legal. So if you want to drop some money on a very good, very pretty, over all light body armor you have found the right one.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Thank you, Tristan, for your feedback!
