What you see above is a selection of helms which are available from one of our suppliers. We do not stock them regularly but they are available for direct shipment from the company and we do have some on hand occasionally. E-mail or call about availability.
All helms are equipped with leather liners and chin straps. Made from 16 gauge and 14 gauge steel, they are designed to take blows from re-enactng but, as always, we caution you about using them in this manner. As re-enactor armor they are not extremely detailed nor are they absolutely authentic. However they are well-made and look great. Whenever we take one or more of these helms to a Highland Games or festival it is always sold.
The first two helms on the top row are Nasal Helms #1 and #3. They are available in medium or large for $125 each plus $15 packing and post. Next is the Gjermundbu Helm which is based on a helm found at Gjermundbu, Norway. It is made from 14 gauge steel and comes in medium or large sizes. $150 plus $15 packing and post. Finally, on the top row, we have the Viking Spectacle Helm. Available in large only it sells for $95 plus $15 packing and post.
The second row of helms are all made from 14 gauge steel and are available in medium or large. All three are $185 each plus $15 packing and post.
Finally we have the Kettle Hat or Chapeau de Fer (Hat of Iron) worn by many men at arms. It is available in medium or large for $170 plus $15 packing and post.
In addition to the helms we can also offer a selection of mail shirts, gambesons, cloaks, plate armor, blunt weapons, bucklers and other items. E-mail or call for details.
