Description

A Museum quality copy of jousting armour that belonged to the Count Ulrich IX Lord of Matsch (1435-1481) and originally made by the Milanese armourers Negroli. The original is held in the Churburg Castle in Sluderno (Italy). His body was so huge that he became the symbol of the invincible warrior and a hero in the Ariosto's and Boiardo's poems. It is a typical Italian-style armour characterized by plain patches. The harness is equipped with a large basinet connected to the pauldron and provided with a very narrow eye slit.

Height - 6'8"(stand included). Weight - 80 pounds. It is made of a very strong 18 gauge steel and is fully wearable. It will fit a knight up to 6'2"tall. It is hand crafted and provided with a rectangular wooden base.

Shipping costs are based on the freight company that delivers your suit of armor not on the UPS fee you choose in the shopping cart. Because these are special order items you will be charged when you confirm the order. Cancellation fees will be determined by cost incurred to us; including but not limited to: Freight Set up fees for custom work restocking fees etc. So please be sure you've chosen just the right knight for your collection. Suits of armor and special order items are not eligible for return or exchange once received in good condition.

This armor is hand-crafted in Italy and comes just as you see it with the stand and inner support frame. The suit will stand alone on the included base or the pieces disassemble and can in fact be worn. All fine knights of course had a Squire to assist in the dressing and undressing process and we recommend that here. The armor is somewhat forgiving in size and will optimally fit a person approximately 5'10 ft. tall and 185 pounds. The size range is from a minimum of 5'7"/ 150 lb. to 6'2"/ 220 lb. maximum. There are some adjustment straps to accommodate the wearer's actual body type to make the proper fit adjustments. We recommend wearing proper arming garments under the armor. It is not recommended that you wear the armor outside in extreme hot sunny conditions.








Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
