Very, very rarely do I actually need the full 30 days, that time frame simply covers me during heavy traffic times and certain times of the year when orders tend to pile up. I generally require closer to two weeks with some builds being faster, some a bit longer. Due to variations available, it is impossible for me to have on stock and list every possibility.
Prices may vary for custom requests, please contact me with any and all questions. The number available listed above does not represent the actual number on hand. Important: From time to time I can get extremely busy and backed up. This set of greaves is initially priced in black but can be made in other colors, the initial listing price is for black.
Just get with me and we can discuss options and prices. The pictures do not do this piece justice! These greaves are made from two layers of heavy 9 ounce black dyed leather with the knee coverage area being made from. I have hand cut, dyed, and sealed these greaves for weather resistance, as well as done some basic line work to give accent details.
I have laced in rows of rings over the greaves - A total of 96 nickel plated steel rings! - using a 1/2 inch leather strap woven in and out of the 9 oz leather through 384 oblong holes that I have punched in. These babies are heavy duty and good to go! You would be hard pressed to find a way to slash through em.The straps have been left long so they can be custom cut to length or, as I prefer to do, be folded back under and tucked under the keeper - as shown in the pics below. This is a design I came up with, patterned and made myself.
It is not some machine punched piece, produced in bulk and put together by a gaggle of half starved orphan kids. Has the entire world lost it's mind? All of my items are produced as costume items and pieces only. Be sure to LIKE my page on Facebook. I have lots of pics and examples on there.
