Here’s another one of those things our own adult sons have been begging us to carry. We couldn’t find what we wanted anywhere, though, so we developed our own!

Chain mail, also known as mail or maille armor, has been in constant use since at least the 4th century BC. Mail was known to be used in times past in India, Tibet, Japan, all over Europe, and more. Mail is used today in stab-proof vests and shark armor, because it is still a tough, flexible, durable material that protects the wearer.

Our Chain Mail Crate allows teens and adults to try their hand at this ancient art. Everything needed, including thorough instructions, are included. Supplies are sufficient to make two armbands and two bracelets.

Kit Includes:

About 4.5 ounces of mail rings

Six clasps and attachment rings

Two pairs of pliers, which may vary in color and style

Wooden chest holding supplies


This is not a toy, but a craft kit, and is recommended for ages 13 and up, due to the complexity of the task. Pieces are small and could be a choking hazard, so don’t leave them lying around.

    We LOVE this! Please tell us how to get our hands on more rings! My son used up every ring in the kit and now wants to keep going to turn his work into something more ambitious!

      We should have an expansion kit ready in just a few days!!

    How many rings and what is the diameter if the rings?

    • Hal and Melanie Young

      I’m sorry, we don’t count them (there are too many!!), we weigh them. Each kit has about 4.5 ounces of rings, enough to make two armbands and two bracelets.

    I know my 14 year old daughter would love this!

      Our daughter really enjoys it, too!
