Mail penetration test

Mail penetration test

In our first film we showed an arrow easily defeating chainmail. But was that mail a true representation of medieval mail? We will test samples of the best, correctly made historical mail, against less expensive, commercially available mail to check the difference in strength and to establish a base line data point for any future testing.
