Additional information

This unique helmet is a reconstruction of the Ultuna Helmet, named for the site of the Swedish grave site from which it was unearthed. Though Scandinavian in origin, the original is a pre-Viking helmet from the early dark ages, dating to the 7th or 8th century. Instead of filler plates, the helms exterior is made from a latticework of riveted steel strips over a hardened leather shell. Instead of an aventail, the helm has hinged strips of steel to protect the side and back of the head. It was likely intended to be a ceremonial helm.

The nasal on this reconstruction is about twice as long as the original find, affording more extensive protection. An ornate, brass serpent-like beast is riveted to the median ridge of the helmet, extending from the front to back. Though the original may have been decorative, this reconstruction is functional and made of riveted 16 gauge steel. The interior of the helm is a hardened black leather shell and is fitted over with an integrated leather suspension system with an adjustable leather tie to alter the internal fit of the helmet. It has an adjustable leather chin strap and buckle to secure the helm to the head in the fast-paced fight. The inside of the nasal and side strips is blackened.
