  • Archer's Spangenhelm - 14 gauge

    The Spangenhelm was a creation of the Scythians and Sarmatians from the Eurasian steppes.   By the 6th century it had become the most common helmet design in Europe. The word Spangenhelm is of German origin and refers to the “spangen” which were the metal strips that formed the helmet’s construction.  Spangenhelms were popular as they were relatively easy and cheap to produce. They were eventually replaced by stronger, but more expensive nasal helms with 1 piece skulls. Some of the nasal helmets shown on the Bayeux Tapestry seem to be of Spangenhelm construction.

    This style was made specifically for archers, the nasal being omitted to provide greater visibility. It is constructed from 14 gauge steel and is perfect for re-enactment. It features an adjustable leather spider-style liner and buckled chin strap.

  • Phrygian Nasal Helm - 14 gauge

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!

  • Saint Wenceslaus I Nasal Helmet -14 gauge

    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. This is the perfect protection from the wealthy warriors from the 10th c. onwards.

  • Spanish Comb Morion - 14 gauge

    The Morion Helmet was popular with the foot soldiers of European armies in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is thought to have originated in Spain and would certainly have been worn by soldiers of the Spanish Armada. This style of helmet is associated with soldiers of the English Civil War where it was commonly known as a "Pikeman's Pot". They were predominantly worn by the soldiers of Cromwell's New Model Army, along with breastplates and buff coats. Surviving morions from the siege of Colchester Castle in 1648 have been unearthed within its grounds and are now preserved in the castle. Some of the best-preserved morions from the English Civil War can now be seen in the Royal Armouries collection in Leeds.

    Suitable for 16th & 17th-century re-enactment, especially English Civil War Pikemen.

    Manufactured in 2mm steel, with a 1.6mm brim and plume to the rear.
