This kettle hat is based on medieval infantry helmets. The most characteristic feature of this helmet is that it resembles a steel hat, hence the name. Just like historical originals, this kettle hat has a rim reinforced with an extra layer of steel and nailed with steel nails. The edges of a kettle hat are historically designed to protect soldiers from flying projectiles. When sodliers kept the head down, the edges protected the face and head against, for example, arrows, stones and other objects. This kettle hat has been specially developed for LARP battles and theater. The helmet is made of 1 mm steel so it is much lighter than a historic helmet. This makes it not suitable for re-enactment battles, but perfect for LARP battles, film, theater, and to wear as an accessory on your costume.

Maintenance & care

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 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.
