This Viking helmet is based on the historical Spangenhelm, this was one of the most popular types of helmets in the Early Middle Ages. This type of helmet has a nasal piece to protect the nose and consists of metal strips, also called Spangen, which together connect the metal plates that form the helmet. The Spangen helmet has a conical shape. This design has a chainmail aventail at the back for extra neck protection.
This helmet is made of 1 mm thick steel and therefore perfect for LARP, Cosplay or theater. Create the ultimate Viking, Germanic or Norman look! The helmet has a cotton inlay for extra comfort. You can fasten the helmet with a leather strap under the chin.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
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.
