GORGET

The gorget (neck armour) is a critical piece of protective armour.

I produce a simple and generic piece for styles Militia to Sargent. For styles Captain and above we can discuss the particular style, time period and embellishments you are looking to include.

The gorget is two pieces of shaped mild steel.

Strapping consists of three pieces of leather and a buckle.

To wear this gorget straight away you must provide your own padding.
