Cuirassier Half Armour 17th Century

Cuirassier Half Armour 17th Century

Cuirassiers were the successors of the medieval armored knights. These mounted cavalry soldiers were equipped with firearms as well armour and first appeared in the late 15th century.

The cuirassiers armor differentiated from the medieval knight’s full-body armor, in that the cuisses (thigh armor) are fully articulated with many lames rather than solid plate defenses. This articulation is further enhanced by the use of sliding rivets. Rather than using steel greaves, the cuirassiers wore leather riding boots. They also used early wheel-lock pistols, in addition to lances and swords.

Our beautiful half harness is a fine example of a 1650's cuirassier's armor. Our Cuirassier Half Armour is expertly hand crafted historic dished steel armour and includes rolled and roped edges and heavy duty leather straps.
