Description of the Product

The Spangenhelm consists of the spangen, or metal strips, which form the framework of the helmet. Onto this frame of a horizontal rim and two vertical strips iron plates are riveted that form the bowl of the helmet. This simple design was used all the way from antiquity through to the Early Middle Ages. By the 6th century it was the most common helmet design in Europe, since it was an effective protection that was relatively easy to produce. This type of helmet was often worn either with a mail coif or an aventail, and some helmets had separate cheek guards. The popularity of Spangenhelm lasted until the 12th Century. Eventually spangenhelms were replaced by one piece skulls, such as nasal helmets and kettle hats.

The spangen-framework and noseguard are made of 2,5 mm steel and the the metal plates forming the bowl are made of 1,6 mm thick steel. Comes with natural canvas lining/padding. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcraft methods used in manufacturing.
Leather chin strap included.
