Really heavy Chainmail squares would have a few kitchen uses, but no one seems to be selling them:

Roll-uppable trivet.

Put them in the oven and then use them to mash panini.

Lay them directly across coals and cook flank steak on top of them.

Use them to weigh down food that are thawing under water.

Use smaller round ones for blind baking pie crust or for keeping bacon flat in the pan.

Use to diffuse heat from an electric burner for delicate sauces.

Chain Mail Gloves and Aprons http://www.scobiesd...il+Gloves+%2FAprons
Used for protection mostly - but I'm sure could be subverted to the uses you describe. [zen_tom, May 27 2009]

       All the weighing-purposes seem valid, but the thermal ones ... putting a steel link on a hot coal linking directly to a steak would be too hot, as a diffuser it would be quite wasteful, especially since there are 'Simmer Töpfe' especially designed for suchlike.

       You could buy a butcher's glove - it's not exactly square, but I don't think squareness is the property you're most interested in.

       What [loonquawl] said plus the downside is it would be nearly impossible to clean and comparitively expensive to make.   

       You can make your own however, all you need is a pair of pliers and a large box of SS split rings. Chain mail is cool stuff.(+)

       So this isn't about jousting?

       Needs more medieval paraphernalia to go with it. ie bread-bin or larder dungeon; chopping block; mace for pounding tough meat; draw bridge oven door; slops bucket for catching over the shoulder tossed chicken bones; and of course politically incorrect, scantily clad serving wenches.
