This knight helmet is made after a medieval miniature from the beautifully illuminated Westminster Psalter (British library, Royal MS 2 A XXII) from 1200-1250 AD. The picture shows a praying knight, kneeling before he leaves for a crusade. His squire hands his helmet to him. In the thirteenth century, the nobility and knights all over Europe wore helmets like this. This replica helmet is perfect for medieval costumes, Knights Templar and medieval reenactment. The helmet is richly decorated with brass fittings and has an adjustable cotton helmet inlay with leather laces, so you can adjust the helmet to the size of your head.

Choosing the size that fits you best

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.
