18 Gauge Steel

This Napoleonic Cuirassier armor is crafted from 18 gauge steel with embellished trim in brass; it is fitted around the body with adjustable shoulder straps of leather-backed brass plates and a leather strap with steel buckle to secure the lower torso. The interior of the armor is blackened.

Unlike most combatants of the day, the Cuirassier regiments of the French Grande Armιe and the other major powers of the day typically wore torso armor. In an age of powder and shot such defense may seem anachronistic, but the cavalrymen fought foremost with their swords in close melee and the armor was appreciated for warding off the bayonets and sabers of the foe. The elite troopers, no doubt, enjoyed the visual salute to the knights of old that their armor, helmets and swords hearkened to. The unfortunates who were targeted for a charge by a Cuirassier regiment likely felt an overwhelming wave of dread when they saw the steel-clad men atop their large horses bearing down upon them.
