Gothic Gorget, 1.2 mm Steel
This wearable reconstruction of a late medieval plate armour for the throat and neck (or rather the upper torso) is made of 1.2 mm (18 gauge) steel. The gorget shows the typical multi-layered look of the Gothic plate armours of the late Middle Ages (15th/16th c.). It consists of two parts – a chest piece and a back piece, which are hooked together on one side and close with a strap and buckle on the other side. The riveted, approx. 2 mm thick leather strap is adjustable to ensure a comfortable, custom fit for optimum protection.
The rounded edges of the neck plates are adorned with small steel rivets and grooves at the neckline. The back is blackened for better corrosion resistance.
This collar is ideal for late medieval and Renaissance settings. Equally suited for the portrayal of a broad array of historical figures and fictional/fantasy characters, it will make your transformation into a proud, noble knight or warrior just perfect, whether used for medieval re-enactment, LARP, stage, TV/film, costuming or cosplay.

To ensure that this armour is the right fit for you, please remember to take your measurements over your gambeson and/or any piece of clothing or chainmail you may plan to wear underneath!
The steel used here is not rust-proof and might show slight surface tarnishing in places. We recommend you to maintain plate armour on a regular basis, for example using Ballistol Universal Oil, which is ideally suited for steel care.
