Ohh, they look very nice. If I may ask, how much would you charge for a normal helm such as that? I've been looking at your website but there is no price indication (at least, not on the English version).

I add photos of new version of hardened arm harness based on Churburg arms CH18 with spaulders:





They are made of medium carboon steel of different thickness: 1,5 mm, 1,2 mm and 1 mm. Weight of one arm is 1,2 kilos and spaulder 500 grams, so they are very light. They final hardness is 38 - 42 HRC = 372 - 416 VHP.

More photos on my webiste.

I'm preparing now a new section with photos during the producions of various harness.

You said that it is made from 1.5mm but is the final version 1.5mm thick? If so that sounds way on the light side of things.

I start work with 1,5 mm medium carboon steel, after forging, planishing and grinding it's final thickness is about 1,2 - 1,4 mm.

Today I want to shear with you few new pieces which I made since last update of my website.

The most interesting news is a great bascinet fully made from medium carbon steel, heat hardened and tempered to hardness about 40-42 HRC. The skull and the visor are hot raised, each from one piece of steel. It's my first halmet with skull made from one piece of steel, and this was a big task to manage.





The skull was made from the circle of 2 mm thick steel, after many many days of raising the thick on the top is about 3-3,2 mm and on the bottom edges about 2 mm thick.





Bascinet after heat hardening and tempering process:



And finished helmet:





More photos of the helmet and during the raising process on my website:

Also there are other news, for example:

Klappvisier bascinet based on helmet from Germany, dated 1350-1370:



Full greaves with sabatons for second half of XIV c.

Thank you Peter Johnsson and Peter Cowan Happy That give me motivation to try make better and better armour.

This time I wish to present you some interesting news which I made recently.

My third helmet with skull raised from one piece of steel. This time it's klappvisier bascinet inspired by italian iconography from second half of XIV c. It's made fully from medium carboon steel, heat hardened and tempered.











The leg harness inspired by inconography from begin of XV c. The most unusually is poleyn which is made from steel and brass gilded.



I add new fully heat hardened arm harness for late XIV/begin of XV c.



Also in the topic of leg harness I update some older models: the Churburg and Charles VI harness. In "Full suites" section I add a set for the begin of XV c. More photos on my website.
