In battle, it is best to not lose your head, especially if you are being literal. Warriors in both the old days and modern reenactments favor protections like this Gothic Gorget that ensure that their neck is never on the line or in any real danger. This particular gorget is similar in design to a bevor, as it protects not only the collar, but also features an extension that sticks up and keeps the wearers chin and lower jaw protected. It also features a moving plate that rotates up and down as the wearer requires, providing a bit of variable protection to the jaw. The armour also displays touches of Gothic style, featuring subtle waves in the steel edgings, as well as a golden yellow brass accent around the lowest edge of the armor. This Gothic gorget is crafted entirely of 16 gauge steel, which makes it quite hardy and capable of protecting against errant and stray blows. Designed to be worn independently, this gorget has straps and buckles to secure it about the neck and shoulders. In medieval battle, heads were bound to roll, unless, of course, you took precautions before you entered battle and equipped yourself with this Gothic Gorget, which will help keep you and your head together so that you can stay in the fight until you are the last one standing.
