Handmade Splint Combat Bracers

Medieval leather and stainless steel vambraces

Splinted bracers of commonly believed Slavic origin have made their intricate way through the medieval history, reappearing in different parts of Europe within dozen of centuries. Recreated by ArmStreet especially for medieval cut-and-thrust ten years ago, these heavy-duty splints developed a reputation as a fan favorite among SCA people. Their design is perfect for modern medieval style fighting because of great balance between weight, protection, and hand/wrist flexibility.

The iron splints from the Vendel grave still are the one and only historically accurate example of Viking vambraces. Considering abundance and geographic diversity of pictorial sources and archaeological finds, dating from the 9th century BC and up to 14th-century transitional armour, splinted limbs protection can be used to complete a Varangian, Rus, Byzantine, and even High Medieval harness.

Feature longitudinal stainless splints, flat till the edge, riveted with cast brass rivets right next to each other onto the genuine leather base, with contrasting split leather lining underneath the entire thing. Their shape is tapered to the elbow to cover the joint. Fixation system includes leather buckled straps on the inner side of the forearm. Being lighter than chain mail and plate vambraces, these are worth time spent for making and ideal for both newbie and experienced SCA fencer who cares about mobility.

Come as a pair; should be worn over padding clothes. Also, can be made out of mild steel upon request.

Materials:

  • Stainless steel 18 ga (1 mm);
  • Genuine leather;
  • Cast brass rivets;
  • Split leather lining;
  • Brass washers and clasps.

Features:

  • Custom size;
  • Battle-tested design;
  • Two adjustable straps;
  • Color selection available.

Brett:

Can these be worn with the Elbow Cops you sell, or would they get in the way and cause mishaps?

ArmStreet team:

The bracers can be worn with the elbow cops. Also, please check our other similar bracers which go with elbow cops (etching can be removed, minus 15% of the price):

Ivan:

Do these cover the whole elbow to include both points?

ArmStreet team:

Yes, basically the bracers cover the elbows, please check the fit in this picture.
If you need more coverage on the sides of the elbows, we recommend purchasing a pair of separate elbow cops with side leafs, such as Medieval Combat Elbow Cops with Round Leaf.

David DePaolo:

Custom Order request: Could you make these same bracers with same gauge brass in place of the 1mm steel??

ArmStreet team:

The bracers can be made of 1 mm brass, it will cost $45.00 extra.
If it works for you, you can place an order via the website and mention the modification in the comment to your order.

David DePaolo:

I have a set of 16 gauge greaves similar to this design in alternating blackened steel and brass strips with brass rivots, brass hardware, and black leather straps & lining. Can you make these bracers custom in a similar fashion?? Armorer no longer in business.

ArmStreet team:

Unfortunately we don't produce blackened/darkened armor for technical reasons, sorry. Thank you for your understanding.

luke:

Hi! I'm having a look at the splinted combat bracers. I'd like to know how much they weigh. Thanks! Luke.

ArmStreet team:

About 1.7 kg or 3.75 lbs (pair).
