Ring Mail


I bought a chainmail shirt from ebay for £26, it was a bargain, I couldn't even buy the rings to make a chainmail shirt for that amount. It fitted me perfectly and was manufactured moderately well (for £26 anyway). So clearly the next thing to do was to dismantle it and completely rebuild it into another shirt. More accurately I turned a chain mail shirt into a ring mail shirt which weighs just under half as much. The rings are only aluminium so it's pretty lightweight in both case but the last time I went to Vale LRP I ended up walking 60km so the lighter the better.

It took about 2 weeks to build in my spare moments and I can't wait to try it out this coming weekend. If I get any good pictures of me in kit I'll be sure to share them with you. (no lasers were harmed in any way during the making of this item)
