I have commissioned a suit of plate armour, thanks to the generosity of my patrons. My first trip to the armourer.

Chesterfield is today in Derbyshire. One travels through Yorkshire to get there from where I live.
This is the start of a rather exciting project, and I hope to get lots of videos out of it. There will be videos about the design, the making, the individual bits, how it all goes on, what goes under it, and once it is finished, on how it functions, and I expect to make some videos of me in it going to the supermarket, riding a bike, and doing other things that people suggest. I'm not sure that rock-climbing in it is a good idea. The armourer, Dave Hewitt is busy for some months making a reproduction of a suit of Henry VIII's armour for the Royal Armouries, so there won't be much to see until early spring next year.
And yes, I am well aware that there are those who will scoff at my use of terms like 'suit of armour' and will insist that I say 'harness'. Thing is, 'harness' does not conjure up in most people's minds a knight in shining 15th century armour.
