This knight great helmet was made after an illumination from the Westminster Psalter, 1250 or later, Royal MS 2 A XXII, f. 220; 2nd quarter of the 13th century. It shows a kneeling knight with his horse before setting off on the crusades. His servant is leaning over the turret with his masters helmet in the background. A copy of the original illumination on parchment is shown below in this page.
The helmet can be made in three gauge of plates. This great helm is unusually decorated with two layers of brass plate. The lower part of the helmet is made of two parts, the upper one is seamless from one piece of plate.
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.
