6mm Flat Rings with Dome Rivets: With this pack, you opt for tight and elegant chainmail. It is ideal for mail collars, bishops mantles, and even full shirts. The 6mm Flat Rings appear darker and denser than their round relatives. This is a 1kg-pack with rings and rivets in the right ratio.
Why are these 6mm Flat Rings bent open? Here is a massive time-saver for you: To insert rings into each other, you no longer need to bend them open, because they are already bent open. Typically you would lose 4 hours to open just 1kg of 6mm flat rings. Say goodbye to that and use your time to construct beautiful weaves of chainmail.
How is the quality? Along with opening comes higher quality. Why? When the rings are bent open, it is easier to check the alignment of the rivet holes. Less faulty rings make it into the bag. Full disclosure: You still find about 10% of rings, that I would sort out. That is surprisingly good for premade rings. In fact, these are likely the best-premade rings that you can get your hands on.
What about historic accuracy? Rings of this size and shape are amongst the finer weaves in history. This matches with 14th- to 16th-century originals from the Swedish Royal Armouries and the Chicago Museum of Arts. With some stretch, it is also applicable for high medieval times. The rivets of original historic rings form half-dome-shapes on the outside of a shirt, while they look flat on the inside. These rings have half-domes on both sides. That means with these 6mm flat rings, you can realize the desired look on the outside. And you easily achieve this look this no matter how you turn the rings.
These rings are compatible with our Riveting Tongs.
