The Asmund Deluxe Leather Armour
Introducing the NEW Asmund Leather Armour ,this has been professionally dyed and built for you by ourselves. Created & designed by Alex Agricola, the whole set is made of premium grade top grain 3.2-3.5 mm Veg Tanned leather. Ideal as a base design for personalisation, using the perfect thickness and quality of leather to carve and tool any design. If you purchase this undyed then you will need to dye and seal the surface, otherwise everything has been done for you. This Armour fits a chest size ranging from 40-60 inches (102 ? 152 cm?s). In development for 4 months, this leather armour has proved yet another challenge, bringing a style that will work well for both men an woman (up to a C cup a more curvy D cup plus will be coming in the spring). Both as a practical leather armour, something that looks good as well as a design that works in true combat.
Another cross over in styles, I wanted to create something that had a story behind the design and here I was inspired by the Asmund Beserks-Slayer, a Viking hero of the Icelandic legendary saga of Egils. Months later? this is the result, to create something special for you. All hand stained and finished, then embossed with our original designs created for Black Raven by our very own Viking hero Artist Micke Johansson and I hope you?ll agree a marriage of crafts made in Valhalla !! As with all my armours, this example design has been lovingly aged, distressed, antiqued and finished to give that ?real? look and feel and I?ve added some light stamp work to show you the kind of look possible with a little extra time, this can be added to your armour for an extra charge by special request.

This armour is designed to be worn and used and is suitable for LARPING, re-enactment, SCA, HEMA and detailed enough to be used on screen and will stand up to close scrutiny and the sternest critique.LARP Armours : All of our LARP Armours are a minimum of 3.2 to mm - 1/8 to 9/64 Inch - 8 to 10 oz Thickness, this is perfect for LARP and Cosplay events where any "combat" that occurs is non lethal and typically involves rubber covered foam weapons with plastic, or fiberglass cores.
