Helmet based on the Gjermundbu Viking helmet - the only one known example of a complete Viking helmet in existence. Archaeological finds reveal that Viking helmets were crafted from iron in the shape of a rounded cap made from four plates, with metal strip reinforcements on the brim and crown. In addition, they came with a "spectacle" guard around the eyes and nose.

This helmet is made with reenactment fighting in mind. The characteristic "spike" on top of the helmet removed since it can catch weapons during fighting. The spectacle guard offers good vision, as well as excellent protection of the cheeks, nose and mouth. With authentic design, this is 
perfect for both reenactors wanting a good, protective piece, and for those wanting a historical Viking helmet on display.

  • Available in 3 sizes
  • Crafted from 14 gauge steel.
  • Includes Leather Lining and a Chin Strap
  • Features Riveted Band Reinforcements
  • Grimfrost's bindrune is placed on the helmet as a maker's mark.
  • Helmet stand not included and is bought separately.
