An aventail, also known as camail, covers the throat, neck, and shoulders of a warrior with a curtain of chainmail connected to a helmet. The Count Grade Mail Aventail fits around the base on a helmet by a leather band. Aventails gained popularity in place of the mail coif by the late 15th century. Wedge riveting, used in this chainmail, became popular in the 1300s and was used until the demise of mail. Alternating rows of solid punched rings and riveted rings predominated until late in the period, when all-riveted construction became more popular. This style of mail is very authentic and is well able to withstand supervised weapons-contact re-enactment. This item is crafted from 17 gauge mild steel. Construction is in the 4 in 1 pattern that consists of four chainmail rings woven through another ring. The mail is supplied burnished to give a grey finish.
