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.
