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.
Our Sugar Loaf Helmet with Visor is hand crafted from 18 gauge steel with a painted antique finish and decorated with a brass cross. The hinged visor can be raised to allow for extra vision and ventilation at the cost of protection. Comes complete with separate padding lining cap that can be glued in if required. Not recommended for contact re-enactment.
