6 Armor Makers of Today

Armor Makers of Today

Posted on March 14, 2014 by team

Victor and Konstantin call themselves happy people, because they do what they love. Their hobby is quite unusual – the guys make armor and sell it earn their living.

Their shop is located in Minsk, Belarus. The armor standing in the center costs over $20 thousand. Shields and helmets are hanging on the walls.

Everything began when they were boys, both had an interest in historic reconstructions. Luckily for them they had useful professions – Konstantin was a sculptor, Victor – a welding engineer.

Initially they were making armor for themselves and their friends, then their hobby turned into a real profession and a business. Their shop opened officially in 2004 and was called “Steel Heritage”.

They already have orders from America, Europe and the Near East. When they mastered the technology of metal aging, the guys were even asked to make armor for real castles.

They are almost like real ones, and they are fully functional, i.e. such armor can be worn and can protect.

    The RUSSIAM people are the Creme de la Creme and the Summa Ultra Summum (in Russian and Dutch the very best of the very best) Comparable with the biggest wonder. Who can defeat them, who can get near them, who can challenge them, and guess who is ULTRA LOVING them.

    Great work, I have been into “sword and shield” reinactment and as a martial art for years, its quite common in New Zealand and Australia. (a lot of the armour and weapons out of the lord of the ring and hobbit movies were made in New Zealand). Its a lot of fun to join a club, and learn about your warrior heritage. A lot of modern techniques and weapon systems are based upon these “olden” styles. : ) thanks for sharing.
