Welcome to That Guy's Products. I am currently producing perforated steel masks and gorgets.
These products have been used in the practice of Western Martial Arts for the past several years.
Additionally they meet the standards set by the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. in their current Rapier Combat Handbook (revised 7/06), and the Midrealm Rapier Rules v. 3.0 (updated 09/01/2006). For other SCA Kingdom you will need to consult your specific rule set\
Price reduction of $25.00 on the DIY masks effective 6/21/11, now $200.00 each. My Midsummer gift to you all.
"Mensur" style goggles are now available. Take a look on the "Goggles" page of this site.
I've added an "all perf" mask based on the medium brow plate design. Visibility and air flow are both improved and weight is slightly reduced. It's suitable for general training, rapier and light to medium arming sword, but not for longsword sparring.
A new "bare bones" DIY model has been added to the Mask page.
Rivets are now available in antique brass and antique nickel.

Sparring gear is intended to reduce the risk and severity of accidental injury to protected areas during supervised, no contact or light contact sparring. It is for sparring only and not for other more intense uses. (e.g., full contact sparring, weapons training, other sports activities or uses, etc.). It is only for use under the supervision of a skilled instructor who responsibly monitors techniques and intensity of sparring and assures that students are properly trained and physically conditioned. All sparring participants should wear full sets of equipment and not use old, modified, damaged or improperly fitted equipment.
