Please note: Lancaster Armoury arms are only available to persons over the age of 18 years, Museums, Collectors, Martial Arts Specialists,Historical Re-enactors, Stage and show presenters and others who would have a valid reason to buy them. We do not sell sharp edged weapons. By purchasing from Lancaster Armoury you are agreeing NOT to put a sharp edge on any of our weapons.



There are claims being made that I/we endorse an imported armour product. This is not true!
Lancaster Armoury cannot endorse other armour products, particularly cheap armour imported from the subcontinent regions.
The reason for this is simply we do not know what standards of quality control have been applied in its construction. A good general rule is "you will only get what you pay for"... e.g.. A helm comprising of two halves poorly welded together is unlikely to continually sustain the shock impact of contact medieval combat without suffering from metal fatigue - even if it is 1.6mm mild steel.

We strongly advise you seek advice from others in your own group and learn from them.
