armour was designed for the more imposing characters on the battlefield – referring
not only to their formidable fighting style. This armour set’s generous
dimensions make it comfortable for longer periods of time even for powerfully
built warriors of both genders. However, a small tweak in design also allows
adjusting "Vigor" to slender people. To do so, you simply have to
remove the central tasset from the armour belt and, if necessary, shorten the
belt. In so doing, you can improve the fit for wearers with slimmer hips.
The style is reminiscent of
the massive armour suits familiar from certain well-known manufacturers of
tabletop miniatures. The oversized bevor in particular lends the armour suit
its exceptional look. "Vigor" is slightly burnished, giving the
armour pieces a worn, but well-cared-for character. The burnishing procedure may
cause small spots similar to rain spatters. As the finish is applied individually
for hand, it is unique for every single armour. However, if you’d prefer your
armour unburnished, you can also easily remove the burnishing layer using a
soft abrasive fabric.
At the heart of "Vigor"
is the broad torso armour, which the large bevor can be attached to using
buckles. The torso armour consists of flexibly connected chest and back plates.
The lower parts protecting the chest and back consist of moving plates. Two
straps on either side are used to close the torso armour and adjust the fit.
The bevor contributes a lot
to the armour set’s brute look, and it is easy to adorn with wax seals or to
blazon it with your coat of arms. It consists of two interlaced moving segments;
the interior front segment slants way down and rests against the torso,
ensuring that neither your vision nor your breathing are impaired. The outer
neck segment rests on the spaulders and is broad enough to offer full mobility
for your head.
The mighty spaulders
consist of seven segments and also feature segmented upper arm protection. All the
parts are connected flexibly and allow a maximum in freedom of movement.
The armour belt is long
enough even for broader hips and features three tassets. These are suspended
from the belt from loops so that their position can be adjusted individually. In
order to reduce the armour belt’s size, you can remove the central tasset and
thus shorten the belt’s circumference.
The vambraces are rather slender
in comparison to the rest of the armour parts. For that reason, they will not
hinder you when carrying a shield. They consist of three slightly curved
segments and feature a comfortable cutout for your hand as well as slightly
bent edges around the wrist, which significantly increase wearing comfort.
The greaves are long enough
to also protect the wearer’s knees. The upper part is mounted to be movable,
making movements such as kneeling easier. The sweeping knee protection is
another very special design element of this armour set. Broad cutouts for your
feet as well as bent edges increase wearing comfort.
It goes without saying that
all edges of these armour pieces are beaded.

The parts of this armour
set are manufactured by hand. For this reason, we ask you to allow for slight
deviations in measurements and weight.
Adjustments to several of the measurements are possible by carefully bending
the respective armour parts.
The plate mail "Rikomer" is the brother of our "Dragomir" armour. Elaborately crafted, it consists of a multitude of elements, which in combination result in an extraordinary armour that could hardly be any more agile.Every part of Rikomer is carefully flanged and matched to each other. Unlike "Dragomir" this armour is not decorated with beads and thus gets an uncompromising, brutal design, which stands in contrast to the finely formed parts."Rikomer"'s design and masterful workmanship make this armour so unique. It is also a bit lower-priced than its brother "Dragomir".Armour suits like this are normally only available as custom-made pieces, and we had to fiddle with it for a long time before we could bring it to serial production. Of course, the fit can (and will have to) be optimized here and there by carefully bending the pieces, but we have designed the armour so that it can be worn to battle with maximum wearing comfort. The medium size has a smaller torso and armour belt. All pieces are polished, making Rikomer ideal for noble knights and warriors of the light.We generally recommend wearing a gambeson & padded bracers & greaves underneath plate armour; wearing comfort and protective effect are significantly improved.Material: steel, leatherTorso measurements:Chest circumference: approx. 120cm to approx. 142cmLength: 64cmNeckline: 20cm
