Knock off the Rust--Get Fighting, Sooner!

All of our products are handmade in order to create the quality LARP armour, weapons, costumes and props that is the Epic Armoury standard. However, because of their handmade nature, these items can be produced with cosmetic faults. On the occasion where one of our armour sets arrive with an imperfect shape or rust, we offer them at a discounted price instead of throwing them away. We don’t like to waste material--and you get a great deal!

Epic Armoury's 2nd Quality Black Long Sleeved Chainmail Riveted shirt is flexible mail armour made from 1.6 mm gun-blued mild steel rings. This mail covers the body from the shoulder to the knees, and has long sleeves protecting the arms to the wrists. Each ring interlocks with four other rings in a 4-in-1 design, and is also riveted to cope with additional stress--meaning it will stay together for a long time! This shirt’s construction is built to last, but does add significant weight at 14 kg.

Wear this Chainmail by sliding it down over your head like a shirt, kept in place with a belt. This is a great addition to heavy medieval infantry costumes, as well as knights prior to the 16th century. Wear it over one of our gambesons for the most comfort and for an authentic look.

Ordering 2nd Quality Armor

When you order 2nd Quality Chainmail, you will receive a long-sleeved chainmail shirt with an aesthetic imperfection in the form of rust. We guarantee that, despite this rust, the product is still safe to use. This rust can be minimized with some good elbow grease and oil to increase its wearability.

  • Maintenance

    Epic Armoury metal works products should be treated with a wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil and kept in dry storage. Metal armour containing leather parts would needs a separate maintenance for the leather. Please read the "Leather Straps and Fittings" section below for leather cleaning and maintenance using leather-care products.

    Degreasing and preparing your armour for use

    When you open your armour, you may be overwhelmed by the smell of grease and oil. The oil has been applied to protect your armour during storage and transport. Use a degreasing product or mineral spirits and a dry cloth or paper towels to remove all the oil from your plate armour parts. Chainmail is a bit harder to remove all the oil from the links, but it can be done in much the same way. Wipe off as much as you can with a dry cloth, and with the remaining oil, you can remove the grease from the chainmail with mineral spirits or another solvent by spraying it on the links. You can also choose to fully submerge your chainmail in a degreasing product and use your hands to agitate the metal in the solution, this will completely remove all oil and grease from your links. After removal of the oil, make sure to dry your armour thoroughly. Strong, warm sunlight is great for drying your armour, but you can also use a hairdryer or a heat gun to speed up the process. Be careful not to overheat any leather parts when using a heat gun.

    Cleaning

    Moisture is the enemy of armour and chainmail. If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible. After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality acid-free vegetable oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of the exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

    Rust-Prevention and Removal

    Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil. Epic Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, but should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage.

    Leather Straps and Fittings

    Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

    You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish 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.
