This is a starter kit for those who want to learn how to create chain mail. This kit includes a beautiful laser-engraved pine box, 400 aluminum rings, a ring bending tool, a copy of the Articles of the Code, and illustrated instructions that teach you an authentic medieval chain mail weave and how to create your own coif (headpiece) and shirt. The 400 rings are only enough to get you started. A typical coif takes about 1,600 to 2,000 rings. A shirt takes about 10,000 rings. You can order extra rings below.
