Leatherwork - Armor.

Chris Lemke (∆iric Ýrvender) has been a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, since 1991. He produces SCA battle tested leather armor and accessories, I should know, I wear it myself!. I specialize in water hardened leather armor, custom demi-guantlets, arming and kidney belts, gorgets, and more. If you don't see it, ask!

All my armor items are finished with a water repelling sealant that keeps sweat and rain out of your armor, making it last longer.

Old world craftsmanship continues with the items you will find here. Custom orders are accepted.

Cuirboulli Demi-Gauntlets

Constructed in a 2 piece pattern, these Demi-Gauntlets are hand stitched with waxed thread and a palm strap. It has a wide bell to allow complete freedom of movement for your wrist and is reinforced on the outside, with an additional panel to protect the wrist.

These are also very easily customized with your personal artwork at a reasonable cost. This is a very easy way to improve the look of your kit, any custom work will require an estimate.

Plain Demi-Gauntlets are $25.00 each

Cuirboulli Vambraces with attached elbows

These Vambraces are made from 13-15 ounce vegetable tan leather, and Cuirboulli (water hardened) and sealed against water, hand stitched with waxed thread, with copper rivet accents. The wrist has a molded wide bevel to allow complete freedom of movement of the wrist, and the forearm and elbow is reinforced on the outside, with additional panels to protect against impact.

I STONGLY encourage you to pad these. Cuirboulli leather suffers from transmission shock just like steel plates, so padding is recommended.

These are also very easily customized with your personal artwork at a reasonable cost. This is a very easy way to improve the look of your kit, any custom work will require an estimate.

$150.00 a pair. Custom tooling is available, please contact me for an estimate.
