You hold your knife between your teeth, keeping it accessible while your hands are busy using your Thieves Tools to pick a noble’s unguarded luggage. Leaving anything valuable without a guard is like an invitation to steal it...at least that’s been your experience.
With a satisfying ‘click!’ the lock comes undone and you pry the chest open to reveal--oh, yes! That will do nicely. You pocket what looks to be a sizeable purse and a few interesting looking weapons, before carefully replacing the lock and sneaking out of the tent undetected.
Epic Armoury’s Thieves Tools are a collection of steel and brass tools designed to pick locks or disable traps. The set includes a lock pick, mini saw, functional brass magnifying glass, universal key and a tiny hammer.
Keep all your Thieves Tools safe by storing them in the included holder made from soft, split-leather. Secure the holder closed using its top-grain leather strap, and keep it handy by attaching it to your belt using its hanger. Whether you are a rogue looking to make an easy coin, or an adventurer who wants to be ready for the most dangerous dungeons, the Thieves Tool set is a great prop to have!

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.
