Functional Steel Greaves

Greaves are almost vital for any warrior to wear. They have been in use to warriors throughout the centuries, having been worn by Greek hoplites, Roman soldiers, and by knights and warriors throughout the Middle Ages. Historically, they offered protection to the lower legs, and here at Dark Knight Armoury, our greaves do much the same, with similar effectiveness. Traditionally greaves were worn to protect the front of the lower leg, but as medieval armour evolved, greaves evolved too, eventually diverging into two types, known as the full greave and the half greave. The half greave is among the more common type we offer here, providing protection to the front of the leg while leaving the back open. Full graves are a bit less common and provide total protection to the lower leg, wrapping around both the front and the back. Regardless of this difference, though, all of our greaves are highly protective, being crafted from high quality steel and various other metals, which ensures that it can take a beating and still offer the protection that you desire for your legs. And even better, greaves are also typically fairy lightweight, which means that for the protection they offer, they will not weigh you down either. And when protection and mobility go hand in hand, a warrior always wins. So if you are looking for a killer set of greaves to wear, either to keep your legs safe in combat or to just look totally awesome in your Greek, Roman, or Medieval costume, then you have come to the right place, because Dark Knight Armoury has a wide assortment of functional steel greaves to choose from.
