A helmet inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry, dated XI century. It combines the design of both spangenhelm and nasal helmets. A conical frame made of two strips connects two pieces of steel. The whole construction is held together by rivets. The nasal piece and a mail aventail offer extra protection.
The spangenhelm was the most common helmet design in Early Medieval Europe and was used until the late XVth century. It was later replaced by great helms or casques.
The helmet is made of 1,5mm thick carbon steel and is completely battle-ready. It offers great protection. The inside has been fitted with a leather cap for extra amortization and to ensure that it sits tightly on the head and thus does not require the use of any additional padding. The cap has a leather strip to fasten under the chin.
The standard head circumference for the helmet is 60cm. Different sizes can be made to order (please specify in the order comments). The wait time for a custom made helmet is at least two weeks and may increase considerably during the market season (Summer).
