Padded pelerines and aventails
After a good bohurt, any fighter will say you that he is grateful at the most not to piece of iron in his hands, not to his armor and gambeson, not to greaves and bracers and even not to helmet (though, he is grateful to helmet very much). However, after a good bohurts, if a fighter is able to think straight, so he is mostly thankful to his soft, thick and good coif. Even though it did not glint in the sun as a helmet did, but it saved fighter’s head of cerebral concussion. If a fighting man was into luck to wear such big, soft and super-protective padded arming cap, made of the best natural linen, so he do not worry about head protection at all. As tailor of Steel Mastery have already wor...

Torse - medieval heraldry headband Starting its way as entirely practical elements, after a while, torse and mantling became a symbol or true knighthood and must-have of knight emblem. In the beginning was a torse… No, not like this… Firstly, in time of the first Crusade, crusaders were boiling in their mails and crusader helmets alive and saw agal on the heads of Bedouins. This thick fabric roller, stuffed with crude wool, twisted and tied in a ring, was pressing keffiyeh to bedouin’s head, preventing sunstrokes and cushioning an impact of sabers. By admiring the smarts of the Saracens, knights shamelessly borrowed design of agal, slightly changed it and called a tors...

Review about items
Service was excellent and the finished product is good as well. I got mine with 5 layers, which is really protective but really hot to wear as well. With many layers it also increases your head circumference a lot. I have several helmets, some of the smaller ones do not fit with this one, but my largest helmet only fits me with this coif or a lot of extra padding with some other.
Torse kit was perfect. Let them know your helmet size and they'll send you all the right stuff. You will look great in the tournament! --BKF
When I ordered my Torse I put a request in for a colour combination they didn't normally do, but steel mastery went above and beyond to get not only the colour I had asked after, but got the perfect shade as well. My torse is absolutely beautiful, made to an incredibly high standard and will last me for many, many years to come. I cannot be happier
Got this to match some padding to go over my bascinet, the material feels really nice and the colours are perfect. I kind of wish they had options for more customisation like patterned fabric or maybe some cloth falling down at the back as well but I knew it didn't have these, but I wanted a more simple design. Maybe in the future I can get something more complex for a different part.
