Only one complete Viking Helm has been unearthed thus far; the Gjermundbu Helm. Found at a Norwegian farm the helmet is over 1000 years old, dating back to 970 AD. It was crafted in the manner of a Spangenhelm with dome plates riveted together. Its most striking feature is the ‘’spectacle-like’’ Ocularia face mask that gives its wearer an imposing visage. There is evidence that the original helm may have had an aventail of chainmail. The Gjermundbu is regarded as one of the more complex, and likely expensive Viking helms, for runestones and other illustration show that far simpler helmets were often worn. The Gjermundbu was likely a helm for a Chieftain or a well-outfitted warrior of his personal retinue. The sight of such an imposing figure, grim helm alit by torchlight in a nighttime raid, must have been terrifying.

This recreation of the Gjermundbu helm has been crafted to give it an antiquated appearance. It has been artificially pitted for an aged texture and dark oils in the recesses give it the effect of having trace rust. It is crafted from 14 gauge steel. The Interior is lined with an adjustable leather liner that has been glued to the helm interior. It has an integrated chin strap with an adjustable buckle. An aventail of butted chainmail has been added to complete the helm.
