DIY Armor Pieces

At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer DIY Armor Pieces for craftier LARPers and historic reenactment enthusiasts looking to build their own custom armor or repair existing armor. Scale armor, ring armor, and plate armor are all made up of segments, and we carry the essential pieces that make up these armor styles, such as our lamellae plates. These plates are used to make up lamellar armor, which was typically worn by historic Vikings, Samurai, and Roman warriors. We offer these plates in a variety of materials, such as steel, brass, and aluminum, great for creating a unique look that is all your own. With our build-your-own armor parts, you can now craft or modify armor to perfectly suit your own, specific needs and tastes, limited only by your ability and imagination.
