Made of 1050 hardened steel.

This armour was inspired by armour used at the time of the battle of Agincourt, 1415.

Here you can see the visor raised, revealing a reinforcing plate that protects the throat of the wearer. A mail aventaille is still in use undernieth it.

Rondelles protect the gap between the spaulders and the breastplate.

The visor is of a rounded form. Earlier visors were more pointed. The helmet still retains it's high point.
