Hawk Studio – Vambrace (Bazuband) – Leather Armor For The Lower Arm


“Oh my Lord, those arms would look amazing strapped in leather!!”

Vambraces

Now, you have to imagine that being said in a lower class Elizabethan English accent and that was how I would start a sale of a pair of leather bracers when I used to work in a Renaissance Faire leather booth back in the day.

These are bracers on steroids.

Vambraces - outer arm

A Vambrace is armor for the lower arm.  This particular version would be worn by a swordsman or as part of a full set of armor.

Vambraces - leaning

These Vambraces have expanded protection for the elbow which surprisingly does not affect the movement of the arm or rub against the skin.  (A Bazuband is a Vambrace with extended elbow protection originating in Persia in the Middle Ages).

Vambraces - elbow

These Vambraces are 10.5 inches long from wrist to the point of the elbow.

Vambrace - length

They were made using a full 10 ounce vegetable tanned leather and solid brass hardware – including 3/4 inch buckles.

This pair is going to retail at $175.00.  I think he is pricing them too low.  These are really cool.

I hope you like them.  Coming soon to the Hawk Studio Etsy store near you.  😀
