The armour for all my group and for me, too, was made here in Argentina. We make all our equipment for ourselves. We test different types of protection. The helmet that I use was the first klappviser we made. The shield has the colors of our country’s flag and the logo of my group “VALHERJES”.

 

The weapon I choose is a falchion, no very heavy, because I fight like a supporter, so I need to run and have a strong hit when I fight close.

 

I`m planning to make a new armour for the HMB World Championship “Battle of the Nations”-2015, more lighter, because my current kit weighs 30 kg and I know it is too much!

 

To tell the truth, we make new armour each year. And we try to make it better, more resistant and movable. And lighter, of course, especially for plane flights, because we have to pay a lot for the excess weight. But when you enter the lists you can forget about everything and give yourself to the fight!
