More splinted bracers

Recommended Posts

I finished these today for myself. Going to be wearing them under a tunic as part of my hidden armor Viking kit. Oil tanned outside, kydex splints and 2mm foam, inner layer is a soft garment grade cowhide.

Obvious issues: not enough room between the splints sometimes for the sewing machine foot, so it marred the leather a little. I guess I'd space them out another 1/4" or so if I made another pair. I suppose if I was really thinking ahead I could have riveted the strapping just to the outer layer so you wouldn't see rivet backs on the inside too, but that might be a little too nitpicky for me...

 

These would only be 1-point armor at KoN.

These look really good. If something happens that I decide I want more protection than the vambraces you made me, I may pay you for a pair of these.

What would you charge for these?

I dunno. I gotta get more Kydex. These took a few hours. Maybe $60?
