This is a reproduction of the Gjermundbu Viking helmet that comes with a riveted mail aventail and a leather protector that keeps your hair from getting caught in the mail. 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. The use of protective mail attached to the skull of the helmet was also widespread.
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.
