Here is a few pictures of my SCA kit. Mostly leather armor with steel plates riveted to the chest peice (recent addition) and chainmaile sleeves. 14g mild steel sugar loaf style helm. Splinted arms with a stainless steel elbow cop. Not pictured is my new steel mitten gauntlet, the one pictured is a plastic one.
I love mace and shield, too much fun.
Interesting stuff guys keep up id like to see some more nice gear :)
I always love these threads.
I am the Templar in the pictures of me wearing MAILLE! (its correctly called Maille, not chainmail >.>)

As a life-time re-enactor, sometimes shit happens, and swords have fatigue, im really glad this one lasted 10 years of brutal combat.
And for those who wonder, I am a blacksmith, and I do make various weapons of all shapes and sizes. PM me for further questions regarding my work.
Also, I am an up-and-coming armor-smith (really just waiting on tools) And I DO NOT work with stainless steel. I am a true blacksmith. (I also can make Maille, both ring and scale)
Just finished my first elbow cop and it fits nicely with my bracer: https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/ … 9267_n.jpg
