This is the first sabaton, also known as a solleret, produced at the Surly Anvil. This piece of armor was found in the the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries, typically with a pointed and elongated toe. The exact use of the elongated toe remains unknown although there is speculation among historians and armorers.
This lovely piece was inspired by another sabaton. Head armorer, John Gruber, thought it was about time to build a pair. The inspirational piece can be seen in the picture to the right along with the pattern that was drawn up. So far the piece has come out beautifully. Take a look at what it took to produce the Surly Anvil's first pair of Sabatons.
