“Armet a Rondolle” Etched Helmet

Stainless steel 15th c. Helmet

Popular in Central Europe during the 15th and 16th centuries, the Armet is one of the first helmets to completely enclose the head. This style of helmet differs from a close helm (which has a single pivot point) by hinging at the cheeks. To protect the close at the back this style of helmet also features a rondel at the base of the neck.

Our Armet is quite classically 15th-century, and would look right at home on a knight or other combatant. It provides decent visibility for a helmet of this kind with an eye-slit as well as carefully placed holes in the visor. The visor is held closed near the cheek with a robust hook, and a metal toggle at the bottom holds it shut at the neck. A push-button system on the brow is also used to lock the visor up or down. Overall, we’ve given you as many fail-safes as possible to ensure the helmet is securely closed and ready for combat.

This luxurious helmet comes etched with wonderful designs on it. These designs are based on no extant piece or historical example, but are taken from motifs found in the 15th century so they fit the helmet quite well.

We’ve used high-quality materials for every aspect of this helmet. The top dome of the helmet is made from 2mm stainless steel, with the cheek plates and visor constructed from 1.5mm stainless steel. We chose to make it from stainless because not only does it provide extra strength, but it’s rust-resistant and makes this helmet significantly easier to take care of than mild steel. Real leather has been used on the inside for strapping, as well as quality foam and textile for the padding.

This helmet has been sold by ArmStreet for a long time, but has recently been recently re-engineered by our blacksmiths to have an improved design to keep you safer during fights. We’ve changed the visor to be slightly more pointy, which causes it to deflect blows better. We have also laser cut our own hooks out of 6mm stainless steel for added security, and made the closure system more reliable.

Our 15th century Armet comes pre-padded and ready for combat, including strapping to ensure you get the best fit possible.

  • Zaid 10 of December 2019:

    would a arming coif be necessary for this helmet?

    ArmStreet Team:

    No need for coif, padding is included with helmet. 

  • Morgan 10 of May 2017:

    Can you make this out of 13 or 12 gauge? My reinactment group (acl) requires 13 for the helm and 14 for the faceplate.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Morgan, yes it is possible. Please contact our support manager for details.

  • Ser Warbourne of the House Brohna 22 of November 2016:

    Can the Metal Be Darkened or blued?

    ArmStreet team:

    To date we don`t have a technical ability to darken or blue the metal, sorry.

  • Travis 29 of September 2016:

    How much would it be with a Wrapper plate or no brass and etching?

    ArmStreet team:

    The helmet goes with no gorget, but you can find the matching gorget here. Both helmet and gorget can be made with no etching, you`ll save 15% of the cost. This way, the price for the helmet and gorget will be $1358.00 + $89.00 shipping. Please let us know if it works for you.

  • Eastederd 12 of March 2015:

    How much would it cost to get this with no etching and in 14 gauge?

    ArmStreet team:

    Helmet without etching costs 15% less. To get the discount, please email us at contact@armstreet.com.

  • Matt Oliver 11 of January 2015:

    Does this helmet include the gorget shown in the picture?

    ArmStreet team:

    The gorget is not included, it can be purchased separately.

  • Jeremy Harper 20 of September 2013:

    New generation of armor and it is outstanding. True work of a master!! Thanks.

  • Carl 08 of June 2013:

    soo you use a padded coif and can you use chainmaill with it? i tend to do make proper medieval fights in the future

    ArmStreet team:

    Sure you can wear chaimail coif with the helmet, no problems.

  • Jeff O'Dell 25 of April 2013:

    Huzzah! On the two orders I placed for the helmets, I measured the circumference around my head across my eyebrows...23 inches. SCA heavy combat has been a great experience for me. I inadvertently located your website by browsing for a 14 gauge custom helmet. I am looking forward to doing business with your company...
