Dark warriors and evil soldiers require armour that matches their affiliations. They should wear armour like this awesome Blackened Rikomer Cuirass. Made from 18 gauge steel, this cuirass comes with a blackened finish. It features front and back plates connected with leather straps. There are two straps on each side. These straps help to secure the cuirass on the wearer and slightly adjust the fit. Both the front and back plates feature a buckle for attaching other pieces of armour such as the Blackened Gorget (MY101070), not included. They also have a round neckline with rolled edging.
Next, the front and back sections have a unique overlapped design for greater mobility. The front plate has six sections. Internal leather straps connect the different sections to each other. Rivets secure the sections to the straps. All of the sections have the same dual piece construction. The bottom piece for every section has a curved point on the bottom edge. Also, rivets connect the bottom piece to only the top piece of its section. It does not connect to the internal straps. The top piece of each section features sloped sides that end in a concave curve. The sharpness of the curve varies between the different sections. For example, the sections higher on the torso have a more pronounced curve. The curve is less sharp on the sections near the hips.
The back section has five sections. These sections also have a dual piece design. However, instead of the top pieces having a concave bottom edge, they feature a gentler curved point than the bottom pieces. In addition, the back plate has two raised, round shapes near the shoulder blades. The Blackened Rikomer Cuirass looks fantastic at your next faire, LARP battle, or cosplay convention.
This item is handmade, therefore, it may vary slightly from what is shown above.
