This helmet is an excellent piece of combat armor, engineered to maximize the protection it will give you in an SCA fight without impeding too much on the wonderful historical aesthetic. It has been a popular part of our collection for many years now, but recently we decided to do a complete re-design that would bring it up to modern SCA standard. This has included alterations to cleverly hide a bar grill under the aventail.
The original design for this helmet is based on an Asian helmet that was found near Shadrino, Altai in 1932. This territory - today in the south of Modern Russia - would have had widespread Mongolian influences in the 13th-14th century, which created some of the more interesting and striking styles of Eastern armor that we see today. You can see this in the shaping of the pointed top, the curve of the eye holes, and the way that the aventail starts at the nose and drapes down, creating quite a unique silhouette.
This helmet has been made from 2mm stainless steel, meaning it is robust and thick, sure to protect your head. Each side of the head has two removable round cheek plates. Stainless steel is the ideal material for SCAdians because it has great structural integrity as well as rust resistance, which makes cleaning it up after fighting practice much easier! The aventail for this piece, however, is blackened mild steel, which is still more resistant than regular mild steel but is worth taking care of properly and keeping away from any excess moisture.
As mentioned earlier, this helmet includes full hidden SCA face protection underneath the aventail. It includes padding inside and is already strapped and ready to wear, including a chin strap.

How are the hidden plates attached to the helm?
The protective plates are attached to the helmet with rivets. It can be removed, but it requires certain skills and instruments.
