Product information "Bishop's Mantle with leather straps and buckles"
Bishop's Mantle made of 6 mm ID riveted and punched rings

A bishop's mantle is a chain mail collar covering the neck, the shoulders and the upper part of the chest and back. It was particularly favoured by the German Landknechte (mercenary soldiers) in the 15th and 16th centuries and is woven similarly to a mail coif. The shape of this piece of chain armour explains its name, as it greatly resembled the very wide-cut collar of a bishop'smantle.

The bishop's mantles made by Ulfberth are modeled on historical examples. They feature a jagged edge. A riveted leather liner protects the area around the neck and the neckline is adjustable by means of straps and genuine late medieval brass buckles.

The RM chain maille type is composed of small rings with an inner diameter of 6 mm only. As per original finds, it is woven with alternate rows of riveted round rings (domed rivet heads) and punched flat rings. Both then and now, the extremely small inner ring diameter has made it possible to manufacture this particular chain mail out of 1 mm steel without impairing its effectiveness, and thereby to achieve a weight reduction of about 30 - 35%. The common abbreviation for this particular weave is RM (Roman Mail), as it was favoured by the ancient Celts and Romans (Lorica Hamata). However, it remained in use throughout the ages and was commonly worn up to the late Middle Ages.
