Postage costs depend on the weight of packages.
For small weights like jewellry / fittings / fabrics / etc. the price will be 6-12-15-…€.
If speaking about body armor, the weight of a package (your order) depends on:
Your size. This is why I first ask for your measurements in your underarmor cloths sending the measurement chart while discussing the order.
The whole set of your armor (spaulders / tassets may be included).
The sort of steel (par example, the hardened spring steel armor will weight about 20% lighter than mild steel).
The destination (sending to USA / Europe / British Isles / Australia / Asia cost not the same of course).
Average weight of the cuirass is about 8-9 kg.
Shipping to EU is about 40-50€.
Shipping to Great Britain/Ireland is 60-65€.
Shipping to US/Canada is about 50-56€.
Shipping to Australia is about 115-128€.
Speaking about helmets/braces/greaves/equipment/etc., the weight of course will be less. The average helmet with chainmail aventail weights about 4-5 kg – so the postage cost will be about 30-35€ (to Germany par example).
Remember that this is the international mail. Prices surely differ from your local. But anyhow Russian Post is not too expensive. These prices of course include the tracking of your parcels. If you will need the Postal insurance, we have to discuss this personaly.
READ ABOUT THE PRICE INDEX
Hello dear visitor!
With no doubts you understand that armor made for a short and thin body costs less than the one made for a tall and large stature. This aspecially touches the scale armors where the every of several hundred scales has its own price.
The prices on pages are fair for the average statures 175 cm tall / 110 cm in chest / 100 cm in waist. For everything what is bigger we have to add the index according to your measurements. This is why we need to discuss every order personaly. You will get the measurement chart from us and then your armor will fit you perfectly.
So please leave us your correct email address when making the order and check the spam folder as the new messages may often been sent there automatically by your email service.
Armour of Constantinopole / Dorogobuzh scales. Byzantine / Rus, XI-XIII AD.
Byzantine / Rus
Scales of same shape were found in Dorogobuzh (Rivno province, Rus) and in the Great Palace of Constantinopole (Istanbul). Byzantine find is dating to the end of XII century – beginning of XIII century. About 200 scales were found fused to each other in fire, seems that the armour perished in the fire happened in Constantinopole in 1204 AD. At the same time the Dorogobuzh find is dated to the XI – beginning of XII century.
All armour may be produced in mild steel OR spring steel 0,8mm hardened and tempered. You can choose spring steel in options. Hardened spring steel 65G is nearly twice harder than the same mild steel. So using 0.6 mm means 1.2 in mild steel / 0.8 mm means using about 1.6 mm.
All armour is by default cleabed by free jet blast & covered by laquer. If you want we may clean every scale by hands. But remember that nothing protects scales forever. Take care about your armour. Use Ballistol oil earlier than rust starts using your time.
Every new armour shipped from us has repair kit which includes leather (pieces / laces), 10-15 scales, rivets optionaly.
We remind you why we do not sell stock armour – reason is that protection must sit comfortably and fit your body. We make custom armours and kindly ask you to measure yourself honestly, your comfort and protection depend on this.
Please choose the correct size while making order.
Except the waist some more parametres are still important for us and we’ll discuss them in private. You can also write in advance your chest circumference and how tall you are.
ALL MEASUREMENTS MUST BE TAKEN WITH YOUR UNDERARMOUR GARMENT ON (gambeson/caftan/etc.) !!!
