FWM Haubergeon, riveted flat / solid punched rings
- BATTLE READY -
A haubergeon is a short or mid-sleeve, thigh-length chain mail shirt.
chain maille type is a variant of the European flat ring mesh.
It consists of a row of wedge riveted flat rings followed by a row of punched rings of equal size. This alternating technique, whichwas not only applied in the Middles Ages but also in the Antiquity already, could save a great deal of work as only every second ringneeded to be riveted. The weave is 4 in 1.
However, the riveting by means of wedge rivets (triangular rivets) only made its appearance in the late Middle Ages. The mail FRW andFWM mail types are thus only suitable for late medieval re-enactment.
