Original: England, before 1312

5 people like this. Do you like this? yes no
This great helm was meant to be worn over an arming cap or padded mail coif. Worn like this, it would have afforded a great deal of protection to the knight.

The front and rear pieces are both riveted to a central strip of steel, with a small ring at the top to secure a crest or ribbon. The front of the helm is reinforced with a cross of steel, with a fleur-de-lis on each tip. The breath holes are also in the shape of a cross on each side. This helm is made of 18-gauge steel.

Unlike historical examples, this replica lacks the liner and/or suspension system that would make it easily wearable.
