About Scale, mail, lamellar armor

Dear friends, welcome to the lamellar armor section!

Here you will find both separate lamellar plates and lamellar body protection.

Many historical resources, both written and graphical, dedicated to armour of Byzantine warriors, and especially the heavy cavalry, depict the widespread use of lamellars. The early mentions on lamellar plates sprang out of archeological records of Assyrians circa 900 600 BC. Among findings of Assyrian armour there are examples that can be classified clearly as scale armour, as well as the others that appeared to be lamellar.

The earliest definite instance of genuine lamellar was found in China (dated to c. 433 BC). Lamellar was used by various cultures from the East to the West up through the 16th century. It is commonly associated with the Japanese Samurai, although the armor came to Japan from contact with Tang Dynasty China. It is also associated with the steppe people of Southern Kyiv Rus such as the Scythians and Sarmatians, and Mongolia plains as well. Eastern armour found its distant mirror reflection in Vikings and Anglo-Saxons warcrafts. Making of lamellar armour by yourself is a good choice in creating custom design lamellars rendering your own ideas so long kept for a dream.

From Latin language «lamella» is translated as "plate", "scale". That's right; this armor is made from the plates, which are fastened to each other. On our website we present you a variety of forms of lamellar plates, which as the result become armor, in other words lamellar body protection.

Choosing lamellar body protection, you should note that due to preserved manufacturing standards in forging of plates and its lacing, these lamellars take blows and punches without buckling its form.
