This early knight's helmet represents a development form preceding the great helm. Typical for this helmet type is cylindrical (flat-topped) shape of the helmet bowl and a face plate connected firmly to the helmet bowl. The face plate has oblong air holes for easier breathing of the knight. The helmet bowl reaches down to the eyebrows and is there lined with leather strap. The wide leather belt made of genuine cowhide has on both sides decorative clover-leaf-shaped holes and is to be buckled under the chin.
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.
