The helmet is quite high and the bowl is made of two pieces welded together. The nasal is not flat, it protrudes somewhat, to prevent the nose of the wearer touching it.

  • the surface of the steel is blackened using a flame technique
  • the brass trim is attached with handmade rivets
  • the row of rivets around the bottom edge secure the inner  liner

  • weight approx. 2450 grams
