Finally, affordable chainmail for the discerning desk knight


chainmailIf you’ve been holding off on purchasing your very own chainmail coif because you think chainmail prices have gotten out… of… control, you’ll be delighted to hear that ThinkGeek is selling chainmail coifs starting at $35.

That’s right, starting at $35. Meaning there’s more than one style. Standard chainmail costs $35, or you can go with rivited chainmail for $60 if you’ve got yourself a heavy coin purse. Ewww, that sounded bad.

According to the product description:

“The Chain Mail Coif is honest-to-goodness real metal chain mail hand forged by dwarfs in forbidden mines near the center of the earth and delivered to the ThinkGeek warehouse by shrieking black apparitions in the dead of night. Its bright shine and relatively light-weight comes from its anodized aluminum construction. It’s appropriate protective wear for most occasions including office meetings and parties you would rather not have attended.”

Those dwarfs aren’t cheap, and don’t get me started on how much shrieking black apparitions charge for shipping something from the center of the earth. Kudos to ThinkGeek for keeping the prices down somehow.
