Bought these spaulders in their blank steel version, and I have to admit, their pretty great and feel just right once secured to your own set of armor. As they are steel, they are delivered oiled and feel greasy upon unpackaging, but this is entirely understandable since it is meant to keep from rusting. A bit of wiping down doesn't hurt, but it is also ideal to have maintenance to any steel armor such as this if you want to avoid the rust. The Spaulder provide a nice sense of protection around your entire shoulders and upper arms, and have nice weight to them, but are not very heavy with lighter armor combinations such as leather, but I expect a full suit of metal armor will weigh you down faster throughout the day. They look great and complete an important section of my own armor set, so I'm very pleased with this purchase. If anyone is considering to buy these for themselves, I recommend, and don't be put off too much if you're thinking about maintaining the armor, it doesn't take much and costs little to do so.
