Chain Maille Coif Armor - Costume Grade Bright Aluminum
This is the perfect accessory for any Ren Faire or SCA enthusiast!
A coif is a basic piece of chain maille armour used to protect the head, neck, throat, and upper chest. Some coifs come as just head and neck protection, this listing is for a full coif with mantle (the portion that protects the throat and chest). This is the same style coif that you saw Aragorn wear in The Lord of the Rings.
Historical methods of weaving were used in the creation of this coif, including expanding Euro 4-1. This piece represents countless hours of work with approximately 6000 bright aluminum rings all hand woven by me with seamless closures. Because it was made using bright aluminum (16 gauge, 1/4" ID) which is 1/3 the weight of steel, it only weighs just shy of 2 lbs.
Maille will protect against an edge of a weapon, however padding should be worn underneath for additional protection and a helmet is also commonly worn.
I do offer a lifetime guarantee on all of my work. If with normal wear, your chain maille is damaged, I will repair it for only the cost of shipping. Trust me, I will know if it is not 'normal wear.'
This is a custom made piece and will not ship out immediately. Please convo me of your interest in this item so that we can iron out the details such as head circumference, and any additional work (daggers around the mantle, a point on the forehead, trim in a different metal, etc.)
Item will ship via UPS Priority Mail.
***With your purchase of this item, you acknowledge that this is costume grade armor and that any injuries resulting from improper use of this coif are the sole responsibility of the wearer. ***
Please note, I am no longer taking orders for this piece of armor, thus the ridiculous price tag. I just couldn't bear the thought of not having it in the shop. =)

All of my chain maille comes with a lifetime guarantee. If with normal wear, your chain maille is damaged, I will repair it for only the cost of shipping. Please note: I will know if it is not normal wear. A friend of mine had a customer return a chain maille shirt for repair saying it wasn't bulletproof (yes, they shot it with a gun - luckily not when being worn!).
My daughter loved this but her hand was way too small for the dimensions given. She fixed the size for us and my 16 year old warrior is ready to go.
