18 Gauge Steel
Weight: 3 lb 15.5 oz

This Saxon Spangenhelm is crafted from riveted plates of steel that have been blackened. The steel cheekplates are fitted to the helm with movable hinges of leather. The rim of the cheekplates are lined with leather to ensure that a steel edge does not cut or chafe the face. The interior of the helm is unlined.


The Anglo-Saxons, like many of the ‘’dark age’’ contemporaries favored the protective Spangenhelm. One of its strengths was that it was fairly easy to construct as it was constructed from a series of riveted plates, instead of hammered from a single piece of steel. If well-riveted and padded it would be a great and essential protection for the head.

The Spangenhelm is an iconic helm of the dark ages and it persisted until the early Medieval period when it evolved into nasal bar helms crafted from a single piece of steel.


A picture link for a separate leather helmet liner is under the ''also available'' section of this page.
