Crusader Armour and Knights Armor

The Crusades were often said to be a Holy cause, one that would save the soul of a man, if he would only fight for god and salvation. For this reason, crusaders tended to be a motley crew, and, as you can imagine, their appearance and armour varied quite a bit. Here at Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a huge assortment, picked for peasants, nobles, and knights. Perhaps the most iconic look of the Crusader is that of a medieval warrior, wearing full chainmail, with a plated great helmet and a boldly detailed tunic or tabard, which displays his heraldry. If that is the look that suits you, that of a man-at-arms and a classic knight of the era, then we can accommodate that need with functional suits of mail, leather gauntlets, bracers, and more. If you seek a more protective look, fitted with plates of steel, befitting a noble lord or skilled knight who prefers only the finest protections, we can provide for that, too, allowing you to ramp up your protection, while still creating the ideal medieval warrior look. We can also suit the peasant or the lowly warrior too, offering suits of leather, chain, and padding, providing a more scaled down but equally protective appearance for foot soldiers, archers, scouts, and more to wear and enjoy. Plus, several of our pieces feature the markings of knightly orders, including such famous groups as the Templars and the Hospitallers, allowing you to become a member of the order that suits you best! Ranging from breastplates to back plates to brigandines to bracers to greaves to gauntlets and more, we have it all. Made with steel, padding, and leather, our products ensure that you can build the ideal look of a true crusader from history. You need only visit the Crusade Armour section right here at Dark Knight Armoury.
