This helmet is a replica of original Stahlhelmen as worn by the paratroopers of the German Air Force or Luftwaffe. A great piece for collectors and reenactors of the Second World War, or for theater, film productions and history buffs. The helmet features a camouflage finish (khaki, green and red) and is patinated for an antique and worn finish, making the helmet look like an original rather than a replica. It even has a rusty piece of iron wire around the helmet, so you can hang leaves, plants and branches on it as extra camouflage. The helmet has a leather inner helmet with a 1 cm thick layer of padding. You can fasten the helmet with the authentic chin strap.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
Choosing the size that fits you best
Add 3,5 cm to your head circumference if you wear an arming cap under your helmet.
Add 2,5 cm to your head circumference if you wear a chainmail coif under your helmet.
Add 6 cm to your head circumference if you wear both an arming cap and a chainmail coif under your helmet.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
