A Noble’s Neck Protection
Epic Armoury’s Black Noble Leather Bevor is a piece of handmade leather armour designed to protect the face and neck, inspired by traditional armour worn during the medieval period. Molded to sit comfortably around the neck and rest on the shoulders, the Bevor offers some of the best protection for the battlefield. Overlapping leather allows for some flexibility, while the black velvet lining and the scalloped edges provide a rich appearance. This bevor can easily be paired with other Epic Armoury helmets and the Noble Gorget for a complete look.
Secure the Bevor by tightening the leather strap across the back of the neck, adjusting so that the chin sits comfortably. Made of thick, hardened top-grain leather, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather care.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
