This armour was made for the wedding of my friend Julien. As his family had a very strong history in the city of Cassis (South of France) his first idea was to use the heraldry of the city, including two silver fishes. But he finally changed his mind and chose instead a pair of gold dolphins which have given their name to the harness.
As the basic veteran model (from which it incorporates many parts) this armor combines the good protection offered by the Italian style to the excellent mobility typical of the Gothic style. An added great bascinet “Alla francese” makes it ideal for “Pas d’arme” and tournaments.

Why choosing this type of armor ?
Choose it for its unequalled mobility : designed after our patient research, it is exactly articulated like a museum original. If you want to fight with the same mobility than a XV century man-at-arms (or astonish the ladies by turning a cartwheels like the famous marshal Boucicault;) this is what you need !
Choose it for its good protection : the large couters deflect or absorb even the heaviest blows targeting this fragile part of the arm. Breastplate and plackart largely overlap each other, which offers a double protection to most of the torso. And the big tassets, typical of Italian style, protect very efficiently the area between the fauld and the legs, which is so often targeted in combat.
Concerning the great bascinet : this ultra-protective type of helmet was ideal for stopping the most violent blows and so it was often used in poleaxes “Pas d’Armes” in all of Europe.
