A gorget is more than just a typical piece of armor that protects your neck. In fact, they are that, and so much more. Any one of the steel gorgets you will find here at Dark Knight Armoury will not only protect your neck, collar bone, and shoulders, but they are also made for helping you wear other pieces of armor, as well! Most of our gorgets are crafted from 16 gauge steel or 18 gauge steel, which makes them perfect for use in combat and reenactments of all sorts, ranging from harmless LARP battles to SCA reenactments. Contact your local chapter first, as regulations can vary from place to place. Many of our gorgets also feature additional leather buckles and straps that will attach the gorget to a pair of pauldrons, which only adds to your ability to wear a suit of metal armor. We also offer bevors, which are like gorgets that extend up over the neck and lower face, and other wearable neck guards in various metals, which are perfect for adding that extra bit of safety to your person when you head into battle. We also offer gorgets in smaller and larger sizes, ensuring that large warriors and children alike can all join in the fun of a good medieval reenactment! If you are planning on wearing pauldrons with your armor, you might want to invest in a gorget, although even if you are not, a steel gorget from Dark Knight Armoury is still a great addition to have, as it completes your armoured look nicely and will also provide that added bit of protection right around a particularly vulnerable area.
