Functional Steel Pauldrons

A set of functional steel pauldrons makes for a great addition to any level of arm protection, although they do more than just increase your defense. Some of the steel pauldrons you will find here at Dark Knight Armoury will also make you look that much more impressive, and an impressively armored look is sure to intimidate and awe your opponents. Of course, looking impressive is only the smaller benefit of being better protected behind layers of defensive steel. Many of our functional steel pauldrons are crafted from either 16 gauge or 18 gauge steel, which makes them ideally suited for use in either SCA reenactments or LARP battles, where they will keep your shoulders and upper arms protected. Some of our pauldrons are simple steel plates that are worn over the shoulders, while others are more elaborate pieces that feature additions called sword-breakers which provide extra defense to your shoulders and neck. All of our pauldrons are sold as a matched pair, which means you always get one for each shoulder. Please note, however, that most pauldrons require an attachment point to wear, and in the case of many of these pauldrons, that attachment point is a gorget. If you want to enhance your look, as well as the level of protection you are wearing, either when you head off to battle or take a short journey to your favorite fair, you will want to invest in a set of functional steel pauldrons, which you can find right here at Dark Knight Armoury.
