These 2 components were used by many Egyptian Royal Units and Commanders. They were shaped copper or bronze in construction. Versions for the arm extended from the wrist, ¾ upwards – on both arms. This gave the Wearer a form of protection against slashes from bladed weapons. The Cuff Armor was shaped (curved) with an opening which allowed them to slipped on. Some versions were even speculated to have been tied on (much as a Gauntlet). Greave-type shields were made for the legs. These too went from the upper ankle to just below the knee.
