This helmet is based on historical Asian armor and is great for LARP or Cosplay of Eastern stories such as Aladdin. The helmet is fully functional and offers excellent head protection in LARP battles. The long nasal guard on the front gives the helmet an exotic appearance and at the same time offers a good field of view and protects the face. The nasal guard can also be removed if you want to wear the helmet with a different twist. The helmet has a wide opening for the eyes and an aventail consisting of butted rings. The edges of the chain mail eventail at the front have a leather lining. This looks great, but it also ensures that the chainmail does not uncomfortably rub against your face. You can securely fasten the helmet with a leather strap under the chin. The helmet is delivered including an off-white turban, which you can attach to the steel using the four holes at the back of the helmet.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
Maintenance & care
Remove rust from your chainmail by rubbing the rings together (just like when hand-washing clothes, but without water). The rings will grind together and the rust will come off.
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.
Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.
This armour is 1 mm thick and suitable for LARP battles, costumes and cosplay.
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.
