While the adage, never turn your back on an enemy, is sage advice, it is often hard to follow. When a band of foes besets you, or an assassin sneaks upon you, the Backplate for Dark Drake or Dark Warrior – Size Medium proves its worth. This backplate fits perfectly with our Dark Drake and Dark Warrior breastplates. It is craft from 18-gauge steel and treated with a dark metal coating that aids in rust and scratch resistance. The breastplate follows a simple medieval inspired design. The shaped shoulder blades, the rivets that follow the edges, and a small flange at the lower rim assist in the deflection of blows. Secure this backplate to its matching breastplate via the leather straps found at the shoulder and waist.
Please be aware that these items are handmade. Slight deviations in pattern, color, and shape may occur.
To properly maintain your steel armour, always keep the metal pieces away from water and lightly oiled to prevent rusting. Occasionally clean the armour with metal polish and re-oil them. Leather care products must be used to maintain the leather fittings as well.
