Balthasar Breastplate (Blank)
The torso armour consists of two pieces : the chest and the back plate. Both are connected with a strap on each side and a strap on either side of the shoulders. That allows an individual adjustment for each wearer. The chest plate is made from seven seperate segments which are riveted to each other. Its moving parts underneath the arms allow a free movement and agility of the wearer. The elaboratly made back plate is rigid and decorated with lots of rivets. The lower two segments are moveable and allow a bending of the upper body. The matching spaulders can be attached to the shoulders of the armour.
Rolling shapes and segments, just as the offset bordering and the decoration with rivets, add structure and character to this great armour.
We suggest to wear a padded gambeson underneath all metal armours to avoid scratches and bruises on the body. This adds lots of comfort when wearing the armour.
