i know icarus said that he's making some shirts.
dude at my school has a chainmail bracelet made it himself
i always wanted to make a chainmail shirt
but i'm too dumb
I've got a chainmail glove that butchers sometimes use. It's a really strange feeling when you run a knife across it though, because it still feels as though the knife is cutting you. It's quite amusing when you get someone to wear it and then slash them with a knife, because they generally think the blade has gone through.

Maybe I should have been an Orc in a past life.
Maybe you were.

Vee? What is chainmaille??
It's interlocking steel rings, joined together in such a way to make armoured shirts and tunics etc. Because of its flexibility, it was widely used by soldiers from the Roman times right through to advent of gun-powder weapons. The high penetrating power of guns, thereafter, made armour obsolete.

That is really cool by the way.
I have a couple of sites about chainmaille and how to make it out there. One of them is Balthasars, this one is crappy i made it in like a day, and my other one is The Best Chainmaille Site in Existance hopefully I can officially publish this one. If anyone would like to help me with that email me at lucifersblind@hotmail. Both sites were made badly but check the second one update list on the home page to see if I added anything new.
