The galea was the helmet of the Roman legionaries. Typical for the galea are the cheek flaps, the long back that protects the neck, and the reinforced eyebrows. This galea for children is a simplified version of an original Roman galea. Unlike plastic toy helmets, this galea is made of steel and is completely realistic. However, you must keep in mind that with 1.1 kg it is a bit heavier than plastic helmets. The inside of the helmet has a leather inlay to adjust it to a max. head circumference of 57 cm.

Maintenance & care

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.
