Chest armour, also known as a cuirass, was an essential piece of armor worn by knights and soldiers throughout history. Its purpose was to protect the chest and torso from blows and cuts in battle, providing a vital layer of defense. Chest armor was made from a variety of materials, including metal, leather, and boiled leather, and could be worn as part of a full suit of armor or as a standalone piece.
Historically, chest armor varied in design and shape depending on the time period and the culture of the wearer. During the medieval period, chest armor was often designed to provide maximum protection while allowing for flexibility and mobility. The plate armor worn by knights during the later medieval period was designed to be more decorative, with intricate engravings and embellishments that reflected the wearer’s status and wealth.
