FS Merctailor Arms et al In Steel Finish
I have for sale one pair of 14/15th c. arms, one pair of besagues and one pair of finger bucklers and on pair steel trimmed spaulders all done with steel rather than brass rivets.

The arms are made from 16 gauge steel, with an outwardly rolled top edge rebrace and bracer cuff and beveled plate edges where appropriate. They come fully strapped with hand made buckles and steel holders with light decorative file and chisel work. They have leather tabs at the top of the rebrace with two eyelets for pointing. The bracers turn in slots in the manner of the " Voght of Match " armour in Churburg ( also shown close up in TOMAR ) and all the rest of the plates are slot riveted as well. The 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 and is adjustable. 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. If needed I can sub out a smaller bracer. They bend fully through the range of the arm and have plenty of hyperextension . I'd like to get $165.00 per pair ( less than I used to charge for them with cast buckles and regular non turning bracers ) plus shipping.

The besagues are made from 16 gauge CR steel. They have rolled and counter sunk edges, are slightly convex with a small raised center point peaked. They are leather lined and have pairs of eyelets for pointing. They are 5.5 inches across . I'd like to get $20 plus shipping per pair.

The finger bucklers are made from 16 gauge CR mild steel with rolled and counter sunk edges for strength. They are slightly domed with a small peak at the center. 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 for the pair plus shipping.

The spaulders are made from 16 gauge CR steel, they have steel rivets, and scalloped steel trim on the edges of the lowest lames. Hand rolled and counter sunk borders and beveled edges where appropriate. Articulates on leathers, front and middle and slot rivets in back. Includes hand made buckles in steel strap mounts. There are two eyelets at the tops for pointing but I will install buckles for attaching to a gorget free of charge if desired. I have 14.5 inch biscepts and took arm harness into account when building. I can alter curvature some for sizing if neccessary. Like to get $70 plus shipping for the pair

Feel free to ask question. Paypal, check or MO are fine.
