Darksword Armory’s Fantasy Greaves and Sabatons are inspired by the medieval armor of the Nazgul in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Dark beings of terrible power, the Nazgul still require a steed to help them get around – whether the steed is a fine black horse or a giant flying lizard. When the Nazgul ride in the films their legs and feet are often visible, and show armor that is beautiful even though it appears twisted and evil. The armor shop at Darksword Armory has worked hard to reproduce these pieces and make them available to fans of the movies and books that inspired them.
Made with 18 g. cold rolled steel, the Fantasy Greaves and Sabatons are able to be used in re-enactment or costume wear. Complete with all four shown armor parts, the Fantasy Greaves are made with two leather straps and buckles while the Sabatons have a fitted leather strap under it and an adjustable leather strap at the heel. The Sabatons are best worn with combat / construction boots and match our other pieces of Nazgul Fantasy armor. They will fit size 7 to 11 (men’s).
