  • Tudor Close Helm

    This is the classic form of helmet most often associated with the image of a knight. During Henry the VIII’s wars in France (1522-1523), this form of helmet would have been in use on both sides. The term Close Helm refers to the fact that this type locks firmly around the head for complete protection, with a very narrow field of vision to expose the eyes as little as possible. The visor is pierced with key-holes on both sides for good air flow during combat. The lower bevor section is split into two overlapping pieces that are hinged at the sides and hook together at the chin while the visor locks down firmly over it. Feather Plume available separately.

    This excellent reproduction by the fine craftsmen of Windlass Steelcrafts® is fully wearable. Made from 18 gauge hammer hardened steel.

    Neck Circumference: 47cm
    Head Circumference: 66cm

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

  • Phrygian Nasal Helm - 14 gauge

    The Norman "Nasal" Helmet was based on earlier Viking Helmet designs and could be worn over a chainmail coif or with chainmail aventail to protect the neck.

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!

    Made of 2mm steel with nasal of 3mm steel. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. Leather chin strap included.

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

  • 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.

    Inner Circumference: 66cm
    Weight: 1.5kg

  • 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.
