Could this armour be purchased entirely without etchings? And if so can it be put in combinations with pieces from other sets?
Hello, sure we can make it without etching. It is compatible with most of our sets.
Could this be worn with the "king maker" sallet and bevor?
Hi Daniel, yes it can be made compatible if purchased together.
Could the breastplate be done in the style of etching you do for your Full Splinted Arms Armor Kit? Already have the Pauldrons and the Full Arm Harness and would love to complete the look with a matching breastplate in the same style etching.

Hi Jordan, yes is should be possible. However, to calculate the price for the customization, we need to check it with our designer first. Please contact our support team for details.
Can this be done without etching?
Hi Niyo, yes it is possible.
Hello, can you get custom etching? And how much would this cost? Do you offer it in different colors? How much could you customize this?
Corey, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we`ll discuss the possibilities!
Does this cuirass tailor to the waist?
The cuirass is made according to a customer`s measurements, your waist and chest measures will be considered during manufacturing.
How much would this cuirass cost in 14 gauge?
The cuirass can be upgraded to 14 ga stainless steel for $450.00 extra. Please note that the cuirass will be much heavier then. The original cuirass (16 ga) weighs 12 kg, the cuirass made of 14 ga steel will be about at least 30% heavier.
Hello, I am interested in purchasing the following items. Paladin Etched Stainless Cuirass Breastplate (without the tassets,) Medieval Western Arms Armor Etched SCA Paladin, Etched Paladin Knight Pauldrons, Demi Gauntlets Medieval SCA Armor Paladin, and either the burgonet or an armet (with a single punched visor if a burgonet.) I'd like it all without etching and in 18guage stainless if possible, again only one visor and no tassets. Is this possible and how much would this cost approximately?
Most of our armor, except of the small overlapping plates at articulation points, such as segments below and over the knees and elbows, cannot be made of 1 mm (18 ga) steel, it's too thin for them, sorry.
Out of curiosity, what would the cost estimate be for the paladin armor cuirass without the etching and made of 18 gauge mild steel?
18 ga (1 mm) steel is too thin for this cuirass, sorry. Can be made without etching of 16 ga mild steel upon request.
Hi Team, would it be possible to get this cuirass without etching and with fluting to match your gothic set? If so, then for how much?
Can be made without etching, but cannot be made with flueting, sorry.
How much does the Paladin cuirass and tassets cost without the etching?
You'll save about 15%, please contact us at email@example.com to discuss the details.
Hello, First let me start off by saying that the armor on this site is absolutely beautiful, and the etching truly intrigues me. I'm curious to wonder how the etching is created though, IE is it etched when flattened, or prior to the armor being formed, or with laser or acid treatment? Thank you. Cheers, Alex
Etching is performed by an electrochemical method of steel oxidation.
Stencils for etching patterns are cut out with a laser.
How much would this be without etching and stainless? Or without etching and 16 gauge mild?
Without etching in stainless steel - 15% off.
Without etching in mild steel - price will be the same as listed
(because polishing and and processing of the mild steel to avoid rusting is labor-intensive, as much as etching).
