  • Greek Corinthian Helmet - Antiqued Brass

    The Corinthian Helmet originated in ancient Greece and took its name from the city-state of Corinth. It was depicted in Greek sculpture more than any other helmet – romantically associated with the glories of the past. The Greek goddess Athena, is frequently depicted wearing a Corinthian style helmet. The Corinthian Helmet afforded excellent protection for its wearer but was both expensive to make and uncomfortable to wear. It also restricted hearing and vision and gradually gave way to a more open-faced but less protective style of helmet.

    This Corinthian Helmet is hand crafted from a durable 18 gauge steel and has an antique bronze finish. It features and adjustable leather liner and buckled chin strap

  • Braveheart William Wallace Leather Helmet

    Many legends have grown up around William Wallace, the leader of the Scottish freedom fighters at the end of the 13th century. Even though he was taller than most men of his age, he surely would have worn head protection when he went into battle. Our original licensed Braveheart William Wallace leather helmet consists of a scull made of extremely stable hardened leather that is covered with nubuc leather on the outside. Woven leather stripes in dark and light brown and a protective fringe in the same material give this leather helmet a wild and unpredictable look. For maximum wearing comfort, we recommend that you wear a padded arming cap underneath our Braveheart William Wallace leather helmet.
