Discounted Real Chainmail

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 Non-Galvanized Long Sleeved Chainmail Riveted shirt is flexible mail armour made from 1.6 mm 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 still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. This 2nd Quality armour has some rust spots on it, and should be treated with oil and kept in dry storage in order to reduce additional oxidation.

    Cleaning

    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 machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of 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 paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.
