The Black Raven SCA Leather Vambraces are our signature design.
They deliver a simple but elegant arm-guard to complete one’s set of armour or to enhance a more formal outfit.
Alex Agricola, black Raven Armoury?s own Craftsman based these Vambraces on an ancient design he discovered while researching medieval manuscripts and they sport a unique Celtic Design.
Made of premium grade top grain Veg Tanned leather (laminated to a minimum 6mm thickness) and available in regular and large sizes, these vambraces are designed to turn sword and heads alike.
Regular: 6.5 inches (16.5cm) at wrist and 7 inches (17.5cm) Long
Large: 7.5 inches (19cm) at wrist and 8.5 inches (21.5cm) Long
For embellishment, the larger size has an extra embossing panel next to the wrist.
?I saw him once at Castell Gwynn… he looked like a rogue from a distance until I saw his gauntlets… no man in Covington Glen could afford Vambraces like that without a noble name…?
