Given how important your arms are in a fight, it makes sense to keep them fully protected. The metal arm armor found here at Dark Knight Armoury works wonders for keeping your arm protected, ensuring that no matter what weapon comes hurtling your way, your arms will be safe and secure behind several different pieces of plate armor. Arm armor comes in several different styles, and it falls to each individual warrior to determine what arm armor is best suited for them. Bracers typically offer the least amount of protection and are light, making them easier to wear. Next up are gauntlets, which cover part of the forearm, the wrist, and the hand, including the fingers. Pairing a gauntlet with a set of functional full arm armor provides some of the greatest protection, securing almost the whole arm behind layers of protective steel. And of course, pauldrons keep your shoulders safe and can be worn with virtually any of the above pieces. All of our metal plate armor at Dark Knight Armoury is crafted from steel and is of the highest quality, being crafted from either 16 or 18 gauge durable steel that is suited for use in both LARP battles and in SCA events. Of course, you can also choose to wear it because it looks cool, making it great gear to wear when you are concerned with your appearance for something like a theater production or a stage appearance. Want to keep your arms safe? Then take a gander through our metal arm armor section and see what catches your fancy.
