    Feh. Most of the "information" and opinions about Maille are still wrong.

    Tell that to the mass graves at Wisby.

    Properly constructed Maille can offer pretty good protection against slashes and thrusts. By "properly constructed" I mean "riveted" not "butted." But even then, historically speaking, Maille was often damaged, failed, or needed repaired. And no one wore Maille without a specific undergarment beneath it to act as protection from the chafing of the Maille itself, to absorb impacts from blows that were stopped or turned, and (along with an over-garment as well) to keep the sun from turning your armor into an oven.

    Feh. I'm still wondering why you're calling it "chainmail."

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk
