Great Helm Black Prince

Fully battle-ready reconstruction of a late medieval great helmet. The original was probably worn by Edward, The Black Prince as a jousting and tournament helmet. The Great helmets were often worn over a smaller, lighter helmet (eg. bascinet). They were common in the Middle Ages throughout the Europe. Numerous contemporary illustrations (and miniatures) and finds from Germany, Flanders, England, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, etc. prove the popularity of this type of helmet. These helmets were worn among others at the Battle of Crecy (1346) and Poitiers (1356). The helmet has a very comfortable padded inlay.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

How and what materials are your daggers made from?

The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
