I have for sale one pair of slightly modified 15th/16th century legs, 14th century style arms and 2 pairs of finger bucklers that we used to sell.

The legs are made from 16 gauge steel, with rolled and coutersunk and beveled edges where needed, they have a two piece cuisse which articulates of a slot rivet and leathers. The wrap plates are different than we used to do, with two plates rather than one, the main plate being larger than the one we used to do and all attached with steel hinges rather than the leather hing we used to do. Includes hand made buckles and steel strap ends with light decorative file and chiselwork. There are full length leather tabe at the cuisse tops with two pairs of eyelets each for pointing to a pourpoint or arming coat. All articulation other than the cuisses is slot riveted and there is very good hyperextension.

I was the model for them and am thouroughly average with 23 1/2 inch thighs ( the hinged wrap plates allow for size variation ), 17 1/2 inch knees and measure 33 1/2 inches from the bridge of the ankle to the point where the thigh bends at the pelvis and they fit me fine. I'd like to get $230.00 for plus shipping ( used to sell these for $280.00 ).

Arms are made from 16 gauge steel with rolled and beveled edges where needed they have hand made buckles and steel strap ends with light decorative file and chisel work. The bracers turn in slots in the manner of the " Voght of Match " armour in Churburg ( also shown close up in TOMAR ). Tha bracers are 8 1/8 inches long and have a max circumference of 15 1/2 inches at the fore arm and 10 5/8 inches at the wrist. They fit me fine and i'm thouroughly average with 14 1/2 inch biscepts and arms that are 23 inches from the ball of the shoulder to the wrist. They bend fully through the range of the arm and have plenty of hyperextension ( second pic ) I'd like to get $165.00 for the pair ( less than we used to charge for them with cast buckles and regular non turning bracers ) plus shipping.

The finger bucklers are made from 16 gauge steel with rolled and counter sunk edges for strength. Lined with leather and stuffed with batting to pad the back of the hand. They are adjustable with hand made buckles with light file and chisel work decoration. They measure 5.5 inches across. Like to get $21 a pair plus shipping.

I'll take the legs if they don't go, but I'm definitely interested in both pairs of the bucklers either way.
