These munition grade arms are based off of an original set of Almain Splint Arms from 1510 Nuremberg. These would not have been used by the nobles but by the rank and file who were just happy to have any armour at all. The slot in the vambrace allows for the hand portion to move up and down allowing for some adjustability to suit the wide array of men in the army. The keyed twist pin allows for the hand portion to be removed from the vambrace if desired and reattached easily in the same fashion. They are very flexible and light providing a great low cost alternative for the common man.
This piece is made of 18 gauge steel and will fit a wide range of wearers.
