Historical chainmaille Answered
Alright a quick glance at my ibles will tell you i'm into armour. I really want to make some historically "accurate" maille, the problem is I haven't found a supplier for the right sized punched washers. At the moment I have started production on the riveted rings, I'm going for flattened rings with wedge rivets, holes are drifted not punched / drilled.
My question is how far from accurate would it be to use all riveted rings in stead of half solid, half riveted? Any input will be appreciated (please add sources on historical pieces).
