Stock Chainmail Items

If you need some chainmail in a hurry we normally carry a small stock of various chainmail items that we have made ourselves, made from either square section rings or mandrel wound steel links.

At the Armchair Armoury we prefer not to compromise the quality of our chainmail by hurrying its construction. A typical chainmail shirt can be delivered in six to eight weeks if we do not have a suitable one in stock. This is because constructing a chainmail garment involves joining each individual ring into the mesh by hand to produce the highest quality chainmail you'll find anywhere. The construction time may vary depending on a garment's size, complexity and ring type, but let us know what you want and we will be able to tell you how long it will take.
