Covid-19 Update
We are shipping as normal. However, the shipping companies have been experiencing a lot of transit delays under the current situations. At this point it is not uncommon for shipments to be "stuck" for several days. Please understand and expect this right now. In virtually all cases, the shipments are arriving as expected, but many are taking longer than any of us are used to.

18-19 Gauge Tempered Spring Steel

This set of plate pauldrons are built for HMB (Historical Medieval Battles) sport combat - the plate lames with rondels are constructed from 18-19 gauge tempered spring steel and are very well articulated for movement. A tab of thick leather with pre-drilled holes allow for this armor to be laced onto a cuirass or gorget; its thick leather strap with metal buckle also fit the armor to the upper arm.

These pauldrons are modeled after a 15th century steel plate harness which belonged to ‘’Victorious Frederick’’ of the Holy Roman Empire. A finely preserved example, it is preserved in the Kunsthistoriches Museum of Vienna. The shoulder pauldrons of Frederick’s armor are symmetrical and feature many segmented lames for excellent movement and articulation. The original armor is shown in the last photo on this page.


15'' in length from top of shoulder to bottom plate lame (measured following curve of the armor)
20 3/4’ in width (measured from widest point following curve of the armor)
Rondel is 4 7/8’’ in diameter
Weight of single pauldron is 4 lb 2.7 oz

Please Note - Only the pauldrons are included. All other accessories shown in product photos are for display purposes only.
