This original of the Hallstatt helmet was found in the tumulus Kröllkogel in Kleinklein (Austria), municipality of Großklein, Styria. The artefact is now exposed at the Archaeology Museum in Schloss Eggenberg, Graz. The original is made from bronze.
Our replica is made of brass (gauge 14 / 2,0 mm) from two parts - the brim and the bowl, which are riveted together. The finish is polished. So that the helmet it attached safely to the head, a simple leather strap is attached, just to knot it under the chin. There are two hooks on front and back side of the helmet bowl (between the ridges) to fix the crest on the helmet. The crest can be delivered with the helmet according to your option. The Celtic helmet comes with a padded cap inside.
This helmet can be made to measure after your measurements ‘1a’ to ‘1j’ in this measurement chart.
Please read our instructions, how to determine a helmet size correctly.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
