Very nicely made! They fit well when sized correctly over padding and are sturdy. Mine came with some tarnish on them but I would sooner attribute that to ordering other items alongside it and they just got finished first, but that was easily fixed. Overall a great piece of armor!
Very well made and they fit perfectly! Absolutely worth it.
