Leather Elbow Armor.

Leather Elbow Armor.

$50.00




This listing is for a pair of leather elbow cops (couter) arm armor.

This style was designed to pair with my "Gondorian" style vambraces. They are constructed much like the other style of elbow armor that I offer, but are more oval in shape, which offers more protection to the inner arm.

They are made from 8 oz Latigo leather and feature a 2-point single buckle attachment and articulated upper arm piece. They have the option of being impregnated with wax to add rigidity to function as armor in reenactment fighting, HEMA, LARP, or whatever your hobby happens to be. As with any armor, if you do plan on using these for protection, you should wear a gambeson, or add some padding of your own ( I recommend cotton batting/pillow filler).

The single layer elbows in the picture are the black option. Be advised that if you choose to wax a lighter color it will cause the leather to darken, so the brown and the Burgundy will end up being a very dark version of those colors.

If you'd like contrasting colors when ordering the 2 layer option, let me know what colors you'd like.

There are also pictures of custom "reinforced" versions of the elbows that has two straps instead of the single two-point system and are shown paired with the "Gondorian" vambraces. As you see in the photos, these can be customized to your preferences. Feel free to message me with any questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

Everything we offer is made to order, so will take a minimum of one week to ship out.

Why so expensive?

Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

Great item. Made better than I first thought for the price. Highly recommended.



lovely elbows, fit comfortably under tunic and are very sturdy.


Well made out of high quality leather (with that wonderful leather smell!) I'm also pleased with how adjustable they are. I was expecting I could only wear them over my thick gambeson, since armor is typically sized for burly men, but I was happy to find that I can actually buckle them over my bare arms (we're talking thin girl arms -- I did have to make an extra hole on the upper strap!) I tucked the long ends of the straps inside, and they feel quite secure while still allowing good freedom of movement. This will be great for sparring in the summer heat!
