Leather Cuirass

Leather Cuirass


*design update: the armor now has 4 straps in front, instead of 3; which not only makes it more secure, it looks much better.

This is a handmade set of Torso armor meant to match my other "ranger" inspired armor offerings.

The armor is made out of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide, and can be ordered in 1 or 2 layer thickness, and can be impregnated with wax to increase the hardness significantly.

You now have the option of adding tassets, which protect the upper leg, and are removable via two Chicago screws.

The armor is buckled in the front, top, and back and is very easy to adjust and remove. The back plate of the armor remains unhardened for comfort.

The armor has a strip of leather down the center seam to keep any pointy objects from poking through.

WHEN ORDERING: Be sure to include a measurement of the circumference of your chest, stomach at your belly button, chest from arm pit to arm pit, and distance from your collar bone to your waist (about level with your belly button)

For larger sizes (50"chest+) there may be an extra charge

If ordering the 2 layer option, the color you choose will be the base layer color, mention in the comments if you would like a different color for the top layer.

Be advised that waxing the leather will make the color darker.

Also be advised that the armor in the photos is the prototype, and future versions will not have a natural leather backplate (unless you choose light brown or Natural as your base color)

As always, customization is available, feel free to message me for details.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

    We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

    Why so expensive?

    Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

    Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

    We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

    Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

    All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

    Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

    To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

    Does the knife come with the sheath?

    No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

    Awesome piece! Just tried it on and adjusted all the straps, fits great. Looks good and I can tell from the workmanship that it will hold up for years to come without issue. Piece was made and delivered on time and I'm very happy with everything overall.
