Where is the armor from?

All armor sold by Bokalo's Armoury is made by HL Bokalo Churis of Trimaris. Occasionally at events we may have trade in items that were made by other armorers. We will always inform the customer before purchase if the item was not made by us, and if known, who it was made by.

Why don't you have pictures of Stainless Helms on your web site?

We do not maintain pictures of our Stainless Steel helms in the information section of our web site because we try to make each stainless steel helm unique. When a helm is listed for sale in Bokalo's Express, the picture listed will be of the exact helm for sale. We do bring a book of pictures of completed helms to events, please feel free to ask to see it, but please do not ask for pictures via the web site or email.

Custom Orders

Bokalo's Armoury prefers to maintain a large stock of items. Therefore although we do take custom orders, it is a very limited number each year. We only take custom orders at events and only items that are of interest to the armourer. If you are interested in discussing a custom order, please bring pictures with you to one of the events we will be attended.

If you are interested in one of our items that is currently out of stock, if you email us letting us know which item you are interested in and approximate sizing, we will send you an email when the item is back in stock.


All Bokalo's Armoury armour comes with a gentleman's warranty (this does not include rivets or strapping). If you feel you did not get your money's worth out of the item, please contact us to discuss options.
