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

Do you make custom-sized chain mail armor?

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
