Epic Armoury’s Black/Desert Beige Claw Bracer is a leather gauntlet designed to protect the lower arm with a good measure of old-fashioned and brutally offensive spikes. Constructed of overlapping plates connected by leather ties, move freely while still benefiting from complete coverage from the back of the hand to the elbow. Of course, this armour is not without style! Flexible leather ‘claws’ adorn the back of the hand like claws, while each leather plate has its own unique and spiked flair. A desert beige plate at the elbows also features runic drawings--perhaps infused with the powers of necromancy.
The Claw Bracer is made from full-grain leather that has been vegetable tanned. Attach the Claw Bracer to your right arm using the leather straps around the elbow, forearm and wrist. A soft leather strap is also tightened around the hand, with a loop fitted around the middle finger. Fearsome to behold and designed to appear sharp and deadly, use this armour with an assortment of secretive and dangerous characters. It can be worn with Epic Armoury’s matching Dark Elf armours or on its own.
Please note that this gauntlet is designed for right-hand use.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
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.
