Need a suit of armor, call this guy

Nute Scott is into heavy metal -- medieval style.

He's an Idaho metal-smith who makes suits of armor.

He travels the country six months a year, selling his armor at renaissance fairs.

It takes about a week to bang out a full suit.

He tells the Post Register newspaper the toughest part is making elbows and knees that flex.

Too loose and it will fall apart.

Too tight and you'll have an immobile knight.

So, how much does it cost to be a 21st century knight in shining armor?

Prices range from about $2,000 to $5,000.
