  • MH Spangenhelm - 16 gauge

Over time Spangenhelms were replaced by one piece skulls like nasal helmets and kettle hats.

  • Wenceslas Style Nasal Helmet - 16 gauge

    This nasal helmet is a replica of one that is on display in Prague Castle that is alleged to have belonged to King Wenceslas, a Czech monarch from the 10th century.

The original helmet was damaged at some point in time by impact from a sharp object. The decorations featured on the nasal bar of the original are not shown on our helmet which has been left blank for your own designs.

    Our Wenceslas Style Nasal Helmet features a combined nasal and brow band with simple wave decoration. The welded construction is in 16 gauge steel with a fitted leather suspension and chin strap. This helmet is approved by most re-enactment groups.

  • Templar Transitional Helmet - 16 gauge

    1 Review(s)

    The Templar Helmet is a style of transitional helmet that dates from the 12th - 13th century. This was a period when the open-faced flat topped helmets gradually evolved into the more protective Great Helms of later periods. The addition of a full face visor afforded much more protection than the simple nasal bar of the previous centuries – at the cost of better vision and ventilation.

    This helmet is constructed from 16 gauge steel and features an adjustable leather spider liner and buckled chin strap. 16 gauge steel construction is suitable for most re-enactment groups.

    Height: 31cm
    Width: 21cm
    Depth: 26cm
    Circumference: 64cm
    Weight: 2528g
