Chain mail Haubeck

Post by festering »

Hi All,

I am intending to make a butted cahin mail shirt (I know its not strictly authentic), but I have a couple of questions.

Would a haubeck be 14th - 15th C?

What other designs would be appropriate?

Could anyone suggest a supplier for rings?

I nearly drowned in a bowl of muesli, a strong currant dragged me in. :)

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
