Staggered Lamellar Cuirass

Recommended Posts

Here's my latest from the workbench. The lames are 14 oz rectangles and 8 oz rounded end staggered. Hand painted on gorget. Completely adjustable and ready for combat.

Beautiful job, . . . 

But my fingers ache big time thinking about all that lacing.  

They long ago rejected any "big time" lacing or hand sewing projects.

What will you be doing when you wear that?

May God bless,

Dwight

Is the "they" the doctors?

This is for sale. I won't be wearing it but for one lucky customer he may fight in SCA and LARP battles or look really awesome at a renaissance fair.

Nahh, . . . the "they" are the fingers.  

Their idea is that fingers are for hamburgers, . . . machines are for sewing and lacing.

At 74 I've got just enough arthritis in them that I tend to agree with the fingers.

May God bless,

Dwight
