Refurbished 15th Century German legs. Made by Von Becke armouries in the late 1990's. VB armourer's mark still present.
They were made of 1.6mm cold rolled steel, so they are heavy and strong, and well over the requirements for 1.2mm needed for rattan armoured combat (SCA). The leather seems to be original. The buckles are in good working order, and seem to be hand made. The fluting and shaping looks good, and after the restore could look great.
Size: They are made for a medium to tall person with lean to medium legs. As they are 1.6mm steel, you would want to be medium to high strength to use these well.
