Functional Steel Breastplates

The quickest way to a warriors heart is not through some silly poetic thought or novel, amusing notion, but rather, right through his or her ribs. Luckily, though, Dark Knight Armoury carries a number of functional steel breastplates that will make it much harder to reach a warrior heart, while also adding a fairly impressive to look to any warrior, too. After all, nothing quite inspires the allies, intimidates the enemies, and fortifies the self quite like a suit of plate armour! Our functional steel breastplates are all made from high quality steel, with the many of the breastplates being made from either 18 gauge steel, or more rarely, 16 gauge steel. They are all designed so that they can be worn alone or paired with a back plate to provide more protection to your torso. Many are relatively simple in style, featuring subdued embellishments that make them great to wear for virtually any event, no matter what era or period it seeks to emulate. If you are getting ready to head into battle and protection is one of your concerns, you might want to pick up one of these functional steel breastplates. Heck, you can even pair with some chainmail, for that added level of protection that you might want or need. Of course, Dark Knight Armoury is also happy to say that, in spite of their high level of functionality, these are also great costume pieces, as they feature a great, realistic appearance that will complete any warrior look.
