We love chainmail and we love to see others enjoy making chainmail
too. We believe in sharing our knowledge to help others learn and understand
chainmail better. To help new chainmailers out, we carry an assortment
of rings and tools to help set you on your way. If you'd like to try
your hand at chainmail we'd be more then happy to help set you up with
everything you need to get started. If you want our advice on what supplies
to buy please contact us and we'll gladly
be of service.
All ring supplies and tools we sell are the same that we use, and we
don't use junk!
Even though we have access to nearly 750+ different rings, we
think that that kind of choice would be overwhelming for anyone
just starting out. The rings we sell are the most common sizes
that are used by chainmailers worldwide for jewelry, armor, and
most anything else you can make.
We not only carry different sizes of rings, but also different
materials. All of which are described in out Materials Information
section under Services. We carry all the different types of metals
that we use for our own products.
Because making chainmail is so diverse, there are many different
tools needed for different jobs.
Smooth-mouth pliers are normally used with soft metals so they
don't mar the surface. Pliers with teeth are generally used on
the harder metals (such as steel) to increase grip and to reduce
the chances of injuries.
For cutting wire you need wire cutters that will last, and for
shaping wire you need some specific tools to get the right look
and shapes you want.
We carry all these plus a few more tools to help ease any Do-It-Yourself
chainmail task you might have.
