The streets are dangerous, overrun with criminals and ruffians. The only thing protecting the merchants and civilians is the Watch. You are a member of the Watch, and it is your duty to guard the regular citizens of your city.
At night you patrol the streets, your sword and a pair of Handcuffs ready. You protect the people who are not rich enough to hire their own bodyguards--it is your life's calling to help.
Epic Armoury's Handcuffs are a set of simple looking irons for locking the wrists together. Each solid metal cuff is made from darkened mild steel, connected by a strong metal chain that can be attached to the belt using a hook. A metal crossbar is used to lock each cuff shut.
To lock the cuffs, each bar is fitted with a simple lock. When adjusted, the lock allows the crossbars to move up or down the cuff in order to release or trap hands. These Handcuffs are a perfect detail or prop to add to a guard costume.
- The term handcuffs is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word, handcop (that which catches the hands)
- Reference to handcuffs have appeared as early as 4th century B.C.
