No Kind of Swords Could Pierce OurArmor
Armor has been around since the dawn of recorded history. In its most crude form, animal hides and bones were used to protect the warrior and horse in battle. With the conception of metalsmithing, armor began to be formed out of bronze and eventually steel to stand up to the awesome power of steel swords. It has basically progressed in parallel with weaponry.
It also has been used to signify a warrior's status and to induce fear in one's enemy. This has lead to many unique designs which improved on the functionality and strength of armor. This refinement of metalwork craftsmanship and design can also be considered an artwork. That is why many people today collect armor as a hobby.
As armor evolved and became more insusceptible to contemporary weapons, blacksmiths continued to fine tune their swords, creating a virtual never-ending race between weapons and protection.
High Quality and Design Is Evident In All of Our Medieval Armor
In early medieval Europe, chainmail hauberk was the standard form of protection used in battle. From the late Middle Ages to the early Renaissance, full steel plate armor was typically worn by knights. It was not until firearms came into existence that the use of steel armor and shields began to decline. However, they were still used by heavy cavalry, in conjunction with breast and back plates, until the first world war.
