This great helmet is a replica of a late medieval funeral helmet of the “von Kornburg” family as it was found in the Church of all Saints in Kleinschwarzenlohe (Germany). The family of Rieter Kornburg (= knight of Kornburg) was a patrician family that resided since 1361 in Nuremberg. The helmet is dated to about the same time (about 1375) and was probably made by an armourer from Nuremberg. It is now on display in the Germanic National Museum in Nuremberg.
Our reconstruction is hand-hammered from 1.6 mm thick steel plate. The steel parts are connected with brass rivets. The elaborate ornate brass mounts on the front are also riveted, howeve they are just painted on the original helmet. The helmet has an aventail from non-riveted spring steel, padded liner inside and a chin strap made of leather with brass buckle.

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.
