  • Monty Python - King Arthur Helmet with Aventail

    Even if the French sneer and the horses have to be replaced by coconuts, a magnificent helmet like this one is predestined for battles with black knights and bloodthirsty killer rabbits. This helmet is just like the one the true King Arthur wore when he was out searching for the Holy Grail.

    The 18 gauge steel helmet is encircled by brass fleur de lis cut-outs and the padded interior is outlined by a row of fine rings that turns into an aventail at the back.

    Interior circumference: 58 cm

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece

  • MH Kettle Hat - 14 gauge

    The Kettle Hat was favoured by the English infantryman and man at arms throughout the medieval period and was popular during the 100 Years War. It was simple to manufacture and offered good protection against projectiles. This design was so effective that it came back into service with the British military in World War 1 and 2. The name derives from the Germanic word “cetel” or “cietel” alluding to its deep cauldron like shape. It was also known as a “war hat” and “Chapel-de-fer” (hat of iron).

    Made of 2mm steel. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. The steel is untreated and may have rust. To protect the steel you may rub it with mineral or synthetic oil.  
    Leather chin strap included.

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

  • T Face Barbute - 14 gauge - Large

    1 Review(s)

    The T-face barbute (barbuta in Italian) was developed in Italy during the 15th century. These helmets were popular throughout Europe and offered an alternative to the more restrictive sallet. The extended sides protected the neck and jaw, dispensing with the need for a separate bevor or gorget. 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.
