THE WARRIORS OF THE NORTH SHALL NEVER SURRENDER
Epic Armoury’s Dreki Armguards is a hybrid between gauntlets and demi-gauntlets, providing comfort and the freedom of movement you desire. Paired with your own leather glove, these robust steel plates efficiently protect the back of your hand, thumb, and underarm, while maintaining the same Nordic inspired, imposing, design that is common for the Dreki set. The Dreki Armguards is held secure two leather straps along with a small steel plate that covers the back of your underarm, one at the start and one at the end, which can both be secured tightly with straps. On the hand plate part, you have a leather band that you put your fingers through, for added control and mobility. With overlapping plates, rivets, and its lean form, you can feel like a fantasy Norsemen, braving the harsh wilderness and slaying ancient dragons among snow covered peaks.
The Dreki set has two colours, the primary being a Matte Polish and the secondary being Epic Dark, to highlight different aspects of the Dreki armour and again show its Nordic inspired roots. Made of 1 mm thick polished mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or re-enactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

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.
