This listing is for a pair of leather Shoulder (Spaulder) armor. They are made up of 9 overlapping lames connected by flexible interior straps that allow them a great deal of mobility.
They are made from 8 oz Latigo leather and feature a long buckled strap that runs across the chest, as well as two straps that secure it to your arm. The chest straps are attached via Chicago screws, which makes them easily removable to use alternate attachment options. There are two holes on the top edge of the armor which allow them to be laced onto a gambeson or maille shirt via point ties; or attached to the gorget that I offer via chicago screw or tie.
We also offer a leather mantle gorget that is a much more secure and comfortable way to mount the shoulders. Check out the other listing if you're interested in that option.
They have the option of having them impregnated with wax to add rigidity to function as armor in reenactment fighting, HEMA, LARP, or whatever your hobby happens to be. As with any armor, if you do plan on using these for protection, you should wear a gambeson, or add some padding of your own.
Be advised that if you choose to wax a lighter color it will cause the leather to darken, so any color but black will end up being a very dark version of itself.
These are made "one size fits most". We are able to make them to fit any size, so for custom sizing feel free to message me.
As always, this item can be customized to your preferences. Feel free to message me with any questions.

We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.
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.
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.
All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.
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.
No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

Excellent quality and extremely well made item. This looks just as great (if not better) in person than in the photos. Very durable. Seller was very communicative and helpful. Items were professionally packaged. 5 stars all around! Thank you!

Great pauldrons, nice thick leather, fit well and got to me fast, even with requesting longer straps than normal.
