Abstract:
With the improvement of firearms, armor is less important. Breastplates, backplates, a steel gorget and steel-brimmed morion (helmet) are primarily for ceremonies and portraits. A buff jerkin reinforced with steel plates is for combat. A rapier is a normal accompaniment to dress. It has a knuckle-bow or cruciform hilt. A buckler, often with a steel spike in the center, is carried by servants.
