  • MH Spangenhelm - 16 gauge

    This helmet comes from a small group of closely related Spangenhelms (strap helmets). The sites where they have been found are widely scattered, ranging from Sweden to Germany, the Balkans and Libya. The Spangenhelm was a popular medieval European combat helmet design of Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages. Over time Spangenhelms were replaced by one piece skulls like nasal helmets and kettle hats.

    1.6mm steel with 1.4mm steel strips and natural canvas lining. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. Leather chin strap included.

    Size M: 60-61 cm perimeter

  • Phrygian Nasal Helm - 14 gauge

    The Norman "Nasal" Helmet was based on earlier Viking Helmet designs and could be worn over a chainmail coif or with chainmail aventail to protect the neck. The nasal bar was designed to protect the face but meant that Knights were often unrecognisable. The famous Bayeux Tapestry shows William the Conqueror tipping his helmet back to reveal his face and prove to his soldiers that he was still alive!

    Made of 2mm steel with nasal of 3mm steel. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. Leather chin strap included.

    Size M: 60-61 cm perimeter
    Size L: 63-64 cm perimeter

  • Saint Wenceslaus I Nasal Helmet -14 gauge - Large

    This helmet was made after the one kept on the Prague Castle who supposedly belonged to Saint Wenceslaus I, a Czech monarch from the early 10th century. This is one of the earliest conical helmets made in one piece that at the time where starting to substitute the comparatively weaker Spangenhelms. Without any doubt is remarkable its beautiful riveted cross-shaped nasal. Meanwhile its decoration is sometimes wrongly related to Odin it’s more probably that corresponds to a conventionalized Christian cross representation. Even though the nasal is richly decorated on the original, we offer a clean version for you to make your own customizations. Without any doubt this is the perfect protection from the wealthy warriors from the 10th c. onwards.

  • Crusader Great Helm - 16 gauge - Brass

    The Great Helm, which began to be seen on the battlefield as early as the 13th century on its earliest forms proved to be a winning design to be used almost for the next three centuries. It was most commonly worn over a chainmail coif or skull cap. It was usually built with 4 riveted pieces with flat top. It has a fierce-looking fixed visor that enhanced the already intimidating look of a charging knight.
