You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.

If no one will come to you, it’s time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your rusted RFB Viking Leather, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your axe down upon him.

You are Raynor Ironshod. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Viking Leather 2nd Quality is our adorned leather cuirass that has experienced some rust damage while being shipped to our warehouse (see photos). The rust is minimal and does not affect the safety of this armour, and can be improved with a little “elbow grease” and special care. Instead of throwing these away and wasting material, we are offering them at a discounted price to fit your more rustic character’s needs.

The armour is constructed from leather cut from chrome-tanned, plated leather, set in a diagonal weave on the front. Attach the front to the separate back plate with split-leather straps fitted at the top and sides and secured with iron buckles on the back. These straps make this cuirass highly adjustable, allowing it to fit closely to the individual wearer. Along the edges of the front and back plate the armour is rimmed with soft split-leather, making it harder to deform with excessive use.

This Viking Leather is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armour pieces. While designed to fit a Viking setting, the style will also match a broad range of worlds and characters, allowing you the freedom to create your own unique style.

This 2nd Quality product is available in Black and Brown, and sizes Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.

HISTORY

  • Inspired by lamellar armour worn by the Vikings, which would have included small iron plates
  • Historically, using only leather as armour is factually inconclusive--most Viking wore ordinary clothing and used a shield as protection

  • Maintenance

    Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.

    Cleaning

    Clean by removing dried dirt with a brush designed for suede, then gently rub with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

    Conditioning

    Treat the leather yearly with oil designed for suede with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
