Medieval Knee Cops
Combat armor knees with side leaf
Check out the traditional design that stands the test of time - now the knee cops look just as you envision them.
Perfectly formed of thick stainless steel, their main cup evenly covers the joint all over, going further to the sides. Features a stiffening rib, that imparts the armor additional rigidity, and the edges bent outward, forming a small rim, intended to reflect the blade of a weapon. The side leafs of Italian style are fairly large and broad, with a V-shaped prong in the middle. Such extended leafs cover the knee bend area, being a distinctive feature of high-medieval armour.
Two small holes for fastening are pre-drilled on both upper and lower edges of the cops. Attach them to your cuisses and greaves or directly to your chausses if you wear them as a separate piece.
Complete your leg protection kit with these practical metal cops to compete in medieval-themed sports. Protection of the joints is mandatory for SCA and HMB, so don't dare to neglect the knees!
