Sutton Hoo Helmet Deluxe

Very well-decorated helm based on the famous Sutton Hoo find. Our replica is made from 18 gauge steel and weighs about 7 lbs.  Inside circumference is about 25".  This helmet has a leather liner and chinstrap.  When not being worn it is an impressive and beautiful display piece.  

The original Anglo-Saxon find is dated to the early 7th century and at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, England. The ship burial is one of the most incredible ever found and included many great items. Some believe it is the grave of King Rædwald of East Anglia. The helmet is covered in design panels, many which appear to match those used on helmets from the Vendel finds in Sweden. This is likely why it is often associated with Vikings. The connection between the Vendel finds and Sutton Hoo certainly is a fascinating mystery.

    I love this item too. The mask does present a problem with the nose. Has anyone found a way to correct this problem?

    Sutton Hoo Helmet

    I have the same problem with this helmet that Jeff posted - it is very uncomfortable because it smashes my nose, but as he said it is "stunning" and I don't intend to wear it anyway - it is for display with my other Viking items. I was surprised it comes with little paste on red dots as I thought it would have some kind of red stones instead of just stick on paper. It is still worth the money and is very stunning addition to my Viking collection.

    Sutton Hoo Helmet Review

    The only reason I give this a 4 star and not 5 is that the face mask smashes my nose. As a collection item it is stunning and I am very proud to have it in my collection. The facemask is leather hinged so it can be worn - I have a larger head - if you have a medium or smaller head the nose flattening effect will probably be less. VERY well made, beautiful detail and worth the money. Shipped immediately (as everything I have ever ordered from viking-shield does), received quickly and well packed.
