hauberk (schema of production)

Hauberk - "annulated armor" - was done from the iron rings. First by the method of drawing it was necessary to prepare wire. It was slipped over round pin - mount so that the long spiral would come out. About 600 are meter iron wire- spiral it departed to one hauberk. They cut this spiral along one side. Then the round extended rings of identical diameter were obtained. Their half was welded. The disconnected ends additionally were flattened after this, in the remained rings, and at this place were punched openings - for the rivets or it was pin, which it is in turn must it was special to prepare.
 
Then it was possible to gather hauberk. Each extended ring was connected with four by entire (welded) rings and riveted. Rivet had in the diameter of approximately 0,75 mm, and fastened it should have been on the ring already intertwined with the hauberk. This operation required high accuracy and skill. Thus each ring was connected with four adjacent: whole coupled with four sectional, and sectional - with four wholes. Sometimes with the hauberk they intertwined Ryad-drugo1 copper rings. This gave well dressed form to it. The weight of one hauberk was equal to approximately 6,5 kg.
 
After assembling they cleaned hauberk and they ground to the luster. This is what the Russian chronicle speaks about the bright hauberks: "I b you videte terribly in the naked armors, yako water to the sun is light to siyayushchu" (Laurentian chronicle).
