Great helm appeared approximately in the end of the XII century in times of Crusades and was in use among cavalrymen until the XIV century.

The quality of the 14 ga "cold-rolled" steel and overall construction is amazing, the end product is a monster of a helm and holds up perfectly under abuse. The padded coif aswell is a perfect fit for me.

Had this blackend and brass helm made and couldn't be happier. Fits like a dream and was kept updated throughout the build. Its an absolute masterpiece. The padded coif is brilliant quality and fits perfectly inside the helm.

Bought this second hand from a colleague, drilled extra air holes for better breathing and wore it in IMCF 2018 world championships. It is a tank and has taken extreme blows and I've never felt a bit. Love this lid.
