ARMOURS FOR THE ADVENTUROUS MERCENARY
Epic Armoury’s Matte Polished Steel Greaves are a set of 1mm mild steel leg guards designed to cover the shin and lower front leg, while also maintaining agility. The greaves consist of three metal plates that loops around the front of the shin and front leg. These three metal plates envelope most of your shin and front leg, while having two leather straps, on the upper part of the greave and on the bottom, that can secure themselves around your back leg. Due to the design of the Greaves, you can match them with anyone footwear that you would prefer, offering more comfort than similar design, that has an accompanying footwear.
The Renegade Greaves are designed to match Epic Armoury’s ‘Renegade’ set, a mercenary inspired armour set that has been designed for specifically female body sizes and types. The Renegade armour is perfect for the well-armed and armoured adventurers or the Rebellious individuals fighting against an unjust empire. Renegade armour is made in such a way that it can also be paired with other Epic Armoury armours, to grant you endless customization possibilities. To wear the Renegade Greaves, you have straps on the top and bottom of the greaves, make sure that each strap is tightly fitted in order to keep the Greave firmly in place.

Epic Armoury metal works products should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. All our metal armours contain leather parts that need regular maintenance using leather-care products to keep the leather from drying out.
If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.
After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.
Rust-Prevention and Removal
Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.
Leather Straps and Fittings
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
