  • Horse Lords Helmet

    Our Horse Lords helmet is based on the helmets mounted nomadic archers wore on the Eurasian steppes in ancient and medieval times - but bears a striking resemblance to those worn by the Riders or Rohan in The Lord of the Rings. The bowl of the helmet is made of coated steel and the nose guard is made of antiqued brass. Our Horse Lords' Helmet has a protective aventail at the back, and the decorative crest is made of genuine horsehair. You can adjust the leather liner to make the helmet more comfortable to wear, and you can fasten it securely under your chin using the leather strap and buckle. Regardless of what the horse is doing, this helmet will stay on every mounted archer's head! Made from 18 gauge carbon steel.

  • Short-Tailed Sallet - 14 gauge - Large

    2 Review(s)

    The sallet or salade was popular across much of Europe throughout the second half of the 15th century. Short-Tailed Sallets were associated with English and French knights whereas the Long Tailed Sallets were used almost exclusively by the Germans. This reconstruction features a moveable visor (introduced late in the period to improve visibility).

    Our Short-Tailed Sallet is hand crafted in 14 gauge steel.  It features an adjustable leather liner and buckled leather chin strap.  Perfect for re-enactment.

  • Late Transitional Sallet - 14 gauge

    Near to the end of 15th-century, sallets began a transformation into the shapes known as "transitional". This replica is based on a piece known as A72 from the Wallace Collection dated on 1520 and is attributed to have been manufactured in the north of Italy. It was likely used with a gorget without bevor and belonged to the collection of the Count of Nieuwerkerke, and acquired by Sir Richard Wallace in 1871. This style of sallet can be seen in the painting by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc in his piece “Castles and Warfare in the Middle Ages”.

    Made of 2mm steel with a 1.6mm steel faceplate. 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 a mineral or synthetic oil. Leather chin strap included.

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

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.
