We are raising funds for bigger and safer workshop (the one I am working in now isn't a safe, nor healthy place for such a work), so I decided to reduce prices of pieces I have in stock. If you can, inform your friends, please.

There might be some other helmets for sale in near future. Probably a Nikolskoie helmet and two "Norman" helmets raised in one piece of steel. Anyone would be interested?

More photos on web site: http://www.thorkil.pl/for_sale_eng.htm

1) Knife with pattern-welded blade and handle of black oak, mahogany, antler and brass.
Price: 800 PLN (reduced from 900PLN)
It's about 205 euro. In USD it's about 295$.
Hand forged blade. Beautiful pattern.
Total length: 21,4cm
Blade's length: 10,7cm

You can also order a leather sheath with silver or brass fittings.

You can buy the helmet with lining and aventail, or without.

The helmet :

Price of helmet without lining and aventail:
4500PLN

Some reasonable haggle will be accepted.

Thank you, Randy W and GG Osbourne. Happy
I must say if not the better workshop I desperately need I would prefer to keep it all for myself.
It's a big bargain for such quality.

I added prices in Euro and USD, it will be much easier this way. Forgot about it earlier.

If anyone would be interested in Nikolskoie helmet (welded version) or "Norman" helmet raised in one piece, please let me know. there isn't much work to finish them , so the waiting time would pretty short.
This is Nikolskoie helmet: http://www.thorkil.pl/nikolskoie_eng.htm
