The armor of war is defined as the type of armor for combat that afforded protection to the vital areas of the body, yet was light weight and comfortable enough as not to tire a knight, nor constrict his freedom of movement in battle. This incredible articulated wearable suit of reproduction war armor of Milanese design is made in India. The steel has been treated to create an antiqued rust finish that not only has a look of authenticity but is also historical. Armour used in battle was often darkened so that it would not shine in light, as to keep a knight from becoming a glistening target for the enemy. It also afforded protection for the metal in wet battlefield conditions. It is glorious armor for all historians and warriors at heart!
