∴ A Protective Force ∴
The full moon reaches between bare branches to illuminate the pine-strewn path beneath your feet. Your footfall is only almost muffled by the carpet of fallen needles.
Somewhere behind you a branch breaks. The sound is cacophonous in the still night air. Adrenaline surges through you, and one hand flies to the sword at your hip.
The other flutters impulsively to your throat, pressing two trembling fingers to the smooth, brass-studded collar that protects it.
You inhale. You exhale. You run.
∴ About ∴
Our articulated Lycan gorget is made from layers of rugged 3mm thick Kydex plastic over 4mm thick leather, protecting your throat from thrusts, cuts and the bites of magical creatures.
Designed to be worn comfortably over or under a fencing jacket, the Lycan is super lightweight and low-profile while covering the all-important throat area. Its articulated construction allows for a full range of unimpeded head movement, while the rolled blade catcher keeps you safe from any slips.
Light enough to slip on for practice yet sturdy enough to protect you during sparring, the stylish Lycan exemplifies grace under pressure. It is one-size-fits-all, and fencers across the range of neck-widths have benefitted from its protection.
Our gorgets are available to buy in limited runs at the Balefire Emporium.
