That looks like a great piece of equipment, and I'd be interested in buying one sometime in the near future. While it doesn't look that complicated, I'm not especially handy and building my own would ...

Can you give us a rough idea of where you're located? I'd be willing to help if you were relatively close by, but I'd hate to see materials/maille being shipped across the country and then find I cou ...

Might I suggest comissioning someone who can work with leather as well to make you some kind of harness so the sleeve could be worn without piercings? This might be a good thing to have around even i ...

Well, of course you're still going to get hurt under that kind of chomping power, but the armor will usually help spread the pressure a bit, and I'd bet that not getting your flesh sliced into ribbons ...

Hm, I didn't know that about Kevlar. It seems counterintuitive to have things that stop bullets but not blades (though your explanation makes sense).

Carbon fiber and kevlar sounds plausible, but it was described as an alloy. And it looked really thin-- no more than 16 gauge at the most. I think the company was called Neptune but haven't found an ...
