Some suitcases and briefcases have metal reinforcements at the corner, sometimes in gold, sometimes in silver. Is there a specific word in English for those or should I simply say "....with golden metal reinforcements at the corner..."?
There doesn't seem to be a specific word for this. Looking at products, I'm seeing:
- Reinforced Metal Corners
- Features a flat finish and black corner reinforcements
- Black briefcase with brass corner protectors
- Vintage Oak Wood & Leather Briefcase Brass Corner Guards Wooden Handle
- Vtg Lito Leather Brass Corner Briefcase Varese Italy OCS Combination Lock
You could use any of these and be understood.
