  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Great Helm - 14 gauge - Large

    The Great Helm developed through the course of the 13th. century and this reconstruction is inspired by the Pembroke helmet, made late in the period and dating from around 1300 AD, now in the Burrell Collection Glasgow. This style of helm was often worn in conjunction with a smaller, lighter helmet, the Secret (see our Secret Helm AB0372). Crafted in 14 gauge steel and fully padded, this helm provides excellent head protection for contact 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.
