This beautiful helmet is based on the original which was found at Gjermundbu in a Viking burial mound. Original is dated to around 970AD. This replica helmet is hammered out of 2mm steel and carefully welded. Four crossing, hand-forged steel straps (the spangens) are riveted to the helmet bowl to give extra strength. A spectacle, also made of 2mm strong steel, is riveted to the helmet as well. The spectacle has been featured with the same chipping marks as the original. The helmet has a chain maille aventail of round riveted rings, the original helmet has the remains of an aventail. The hand-forged tip of the helmet is screwed on and easy to remove for a safer combat. The steel has a patinated surface to give it a worn look. Comfortable cloth liner is padded and adjustable. Leather chinstrap with buckle. Medium weighs about 6.5lbs and has an inner circumference of about 24". Large weighs about 7lbs and has inner circumference of about 25.5".
