A good leather bracer not only looks good, it will last a long time if treated correctly, as well as providing invaluable protection against string slap.
This Bracer has been hand made from high quality veg tanned 2.5mm leather.
The bracer measures 6" at its widest point (nearest to elbow) and tapers to 4.5" at its narrowest (nearest to wrist). It is 7" in length with a curved section at the wrist for comfort and to give the wrist room to flex while holding the bow. The edges of the bracer have been burnished to give a very comfortable feel to the edges against the skin.
The bracer can be worn either left or right handed.
The design is hand carved Elvish writing, which translates to 'One Ring to Rule them all, One Ring to Find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness, bind them. The writing has been treated with a Black highlighter stain and then the whole bracer has had two coats of either Ox Blood/Evening Blue or Deep Violet leather dye applied to it. The result is that the Elvish writing stands out wonderfully in contrast to the Red/Blue/Purple of the Bracer, and the area with the circle of writing is slightly darker than the outer parts.
The bracer has been finished with two coats of water resistent Resolene to protect the leather and a top coat of Carnauba Creme Wax, which also adds a water resistent finish as well has giving a nice sheen to the leather.
The Bracer is fitted with three Nickel lace hooks and elastic shock cord to fix the bracer in place. It is a very flexible approach to fixing the bracer as it can be done with one hand and it is very quick to put on and take off. The elastic cord has been left quite long and can be adjusted to suit by untying the knot and re-tying it at a shorter length and cutting off the excess. Nickel eyelets have been fitted to each elastic cord hole to not only enhance the look of the bracer but also to protect the leather from being stretched or damaged.
We have a number of these bracers in stock but if we have sold out I will make it to order, in which case I will send you a message with expected delivery timescale (usually no longer than a week).
