I’ve been working on chainmail mantle when I got some time to waste and I was wondering how it would hold up in the field and what experience other people have had with this kind of maille,
It is made from 14 gauge stainless steel which is pretty strong and a pain in the *** to use, as you can see in the picture the rings are pretty small but idk the exact diameter and it is butted chainmail.
(the coif is butted steel too but not stainless)
close up before it got painted
It’s still a work in progress and getting larger every time.
Also how would this count as armour?
