Medieval Rus Leg Armour
Greaves with knee cops, 12-14th cc.
These greaves are based on authentic XII-XIV century design from Dmitrovka grave in the Kuban (Southern Russia). Construction of these greaves is very unusual. Greaves are made of two parts - greave itself and knee cop united with the main plate by chain mail segment. The main plate has additional plate segment at the outer side for extra calf side protection.
General shape and armor style comes from historical sources and etched patterns are based on same period motifs we've found on jewelry and other armour pieces decorations.
These greaves are part of our Rus medieval armor kit so please check our other items from this collection.
