14 Gauge Steel

Contrary to popular depiction, Vikings did not adorn their helmets with horns. Their helms were usually variations of the conical nasal helm - a near universal helm design in early Medieval Europe. Simple and effective, this helm gives good protection for the skull and the nasal bar protects the face from cuts without restricting visibility. Only one helm has survived that can be definitively attributed to a Viking, and it was found within a burial mound in Gjermundbu Norway. This replica is loosely based on that helm and has added stylized eyebrows and animal heads (probably reindeer) at the base of the crown. The nasal bar is quite thick.

Made of riveted high carbon steel, this helm is lined with black leather and padded at the base. It has an integrated black leather chin strap.
