The Norman Helm was made famous by William the Conqueror and the Norman victory at Hastings in 1066. Worn by Saxons and Vikings in the 10th and 11th centuries, they can be dated as far back as the 6th century and were still in use as late as the 15th century. The helmets get their name from their solid 'nasal' shape, which is borrowed from 11th-13th century style.
A traditional Norman style of helmet, this helm features a convex top with a subtle central ridge, which serves the purpose of diverting force and blows away from the top of the helm and down its sides.
This Phrygian shaped norman helmet is made of 2mm steel with nasal of 3mm steel. Leather chin strap with buckles and padded webbing included.
Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used on its manufacturing.
