These leather greaves look great and are truly functional. They are handcrafted and made of high quality leather. They are designed to provide protection in LARP(Live Action Role Play) but are also a great choice if you are looking for a compliment to any medeival costume.
Some people are good at horseshoes. Some are great with puzzles or particulalry good with puppies. Assassins happen to be good at killing people. Oddly, enough, assassins also usually have a very good fashion sense (although their wardrobe variety consists of black and brown only).
These greaves are typical of the style favored by assassins, monks, rogues and even sorcerers. The criss-crossing straps along the front mimic the type of ties that would keep the greaves tight around the leg; this prevented slippage which might interfere with the delicate operations carried out by the wearer. Leather slip through a series of straps to provide the real closure.

The flintlock pistol was the greatest advance in pirating since the wooden leg. The concept was fairly simple: gunpowder was stuffed into the barrel. A lead ball, usually wrapped in some sort of fabric, was stuffed in. A hammer was then pulled back half-way and left that way until the gun was ready to fire. The pistol technically was not meant to fire in this position, although sometimes they were known to go off half-cocked (and yes, that is the origin of that expression). When the gun was ready to be fired, the hammer was pulled back all the way and the trigger was squeezed.
