LET ME TELL YOU A WAR STORY, LADDIE…
Whether a novice or a veteran you rely on sturdy armour to protect you. Epic Armoury’s RFB Veteran Greaves are elegant leather Greaves designed to protect your shins. The armour is constructed from chrome-tanned split leather and carefully stitched around the edges to create a simple yet aesthetic design. The armour is secured to the leg by sturdy leather straps and brass buckles.
Hemmed with additional soft split leather to keep the armour from deforming with excessive wear, this leg-guard will withstand any LARP abuse, you might force on it. The greaves match our Veteran Armour and Bracers, but have a distinct, neutral style that will fit with almost any combination of costuming, when you craft your LARP kit for your next adventure.
Available in colours Black and Brown, and size S-M or L-XL.

Natural leather products are very durable but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase lifetime. 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.
