  • T Face Barbute - 14 gauge - Large

Our T-faced barbute replicates the helmet of the ‘Avant’ armour housed at the Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow and is crafted in 14 gauge steel with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap. Perfect for re-enactment.

  • Sugar Loaf Helmet with Visor – 14 gauge - Large

    The Sugar Loaf helmet, so called because of its similarity in shape to the traditional "Sugar Loaves" that sugar was traditionally sold in, was a later variant of the Great Helm and was used throughout the 13th and 14th Centuries. This style of helmet saw use in many famous battles of the period and was also worn by Crusaders. The domed top was much better at deflecting blows than the flat topped Great Helms.

Crafted in 14 gauge steel with its great cross overlaid in brass, the helm has a movable visor, excellent ventilation and full padding. Perfect for the re-enactment field.
