    I feel this guys pain regarding random street crime and admire this magnificent mail vest he made. Look how small the links are.

    Never responded to this one when it first popped up, but the featured gentleman has produced an absolutely beautiful shirt of mail for himself. Not sure what the links are made of – I presume they’re just butted links – but I think that would save him from a “casual” attacker.

    Being on a Tolkien kick lately, I look at his armor and immediately think of Frodo’s tiny Mithril hauberk…

    I like that guy, don’t know how I missed it before. You are right, the links are very fine. Extremely impressive. I remember reading a study by the English police on stab vests and after a whole lot of complicated ideas (and quite a bit of money spent) they came back to mail essentially as the best method.
