Late Medieval Besagews, 1.2 mm Steel, Pair

In the late Middle Ages, the increasing effectiveness of offensive weapons brought the need for improved protection, and the best possible was done to close the vulnerable gaps between the armour plates. The so-called besagews or besagues of the late medieval / Gothic plate armours, although quite often very decorative, were primarily designed to protect the armpits and upper arms from high cuts and blows.

The flower-shaped, slightly concave besagews we offer here are made of 1.2 mm (18 gauge) steel. The back of each rondel is blackened for better corrosion resistance, and equipped with a securely riveted, pre-punched leather strap for proper attachment to a plate armour, pauldrons, or a mail shirt (the required cords are not included in the scope of delivery).

These steel rondels are ideal for late medieval and Renaissance settings. Equally suited for the portrayal of a broad array of historical figures and fictional/fantasy characters, it will make your transformation into a proud, noble knight or warrior just perfect, whether used for medieval re-enactment, LARP, stage, TV/film, costuming or cosplay.

Sold as a pair.

- Material: 1.2mm (18 ga) sheet steel, brown leather straps
- Diameter: approx. 14 cm
- Dimensions of leather straps: approx. 7 x 2.5 cm / approx. 2 mm thick

Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.

Delivery includes the besagews only! The other armour parts pictured above are available separately in our online shop.

The steel used here is not rust-proof and might show slight surface tarnishing in places. We recommend you to maintain plate armour on a regular basis, for example using Ballistol Universal Oil, which is ideally suited for steel care.
