This intimidating Viking Helmet would have been a key piece of protective wargear for a full time Viking warrior – an elite warrior who served in the permanent war retinue of a Chieftain or noble. It may also be part of the wargear of a successful raider who could afford superior armor. This Viking helm builds upon the foundational protection of a riveted Spangenhelm with the addition of an ocular face mask and a sweeping camail of chainmail to ensure that no part of the face and neck are left exposed to the blade of the foe.
This Viking Huscarl Helm is crafted from plates of riveted steel and perforated holes at its edges allow for that addition of a camail of butted high tensile wire rings. The interior of the helmet is lined with a leather suspension liner of high quality leather. It is completed with a sturdy chinstrap of leather which is secured with a brass buckle.
