    Is it possible to get this without etching and could it have a discount?

    The helmet can be made with no etching, you`ll save about 15% from the original price. Since now the helmet is already discounted, the price will be as listed, just mention in the comments to your order is you need etching or not.

  • Ben Mackie 20 of August 2016:

    Hello, I was looking at your prince of the east armor, and was wondering if it also comes with the chain mail curass it says it comes with a curass, and it says that it wont come with the helmet, but it doesnt say anything else about it. I will buy the armor if it also includes the chainmail but I probably wont otherwise. Please let me know what the armor includes. Thanks so much sincerely -Ben M

    ArmStreet team:

    The chainmail is not included to the armor kit Prince of the East. The helmet is available separately.

  • Bob 14 of May 2016:

    How think is the steel in these suits of armor?

    ArmStreet team:

    This helmet is made of 14 ga (2 mm) stainless steel. Most of our armor is made of mild or stainless steel 1.5-2.5 mm, usually steel thickness is specified in the description of the item.

  • Kelly Way 30 of March 2016:

    Can this be done without etching?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Kelly, yes we can make it without etching. 

  • Brandon Riddell 17 of March 2016:

    Hey team do you guys have a rivited aventail option available for this helm?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Brandon, yes we can make riveted aventail for $70 extra. Please simply leave this request in the comment to your order. 

  • randall courtney 25 of June 2015:

    can you make this in 3 mil ss? I am concerned sca fighting will dent this a lot also is there a picture of your bar grill for this helm.

    ArmStreet team:

    Cannot be made of 3 mm steel due to the technical reasons, sorry. This helm can only be made of 14 ga (2 mm) stainless or mild steel.

    Bar grill for this helmet is the same as pictured here.

  • Jared 09 of June 2015:

    Could I get this without the aventail so I can add my own riveted one?

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, you'll save $50 on the aventail. Just email us at contact@armstreet.com to get the discount.

  • Robert 29 of May 2015:

    i Wear glasses. Would this helm be comfortable while wearing glasses?

    ArmStreet team:

    According to the SCA rules, ordinary glass lenses are prohibited. We recommend replacing them with contact lenses, or wearing motorcycle goggles over the glasses. Then measure your head 1. as usual, along the eyebrows and 2. along the most exposed points of the goggles. Also please mention this detail in the comments to your order.

  • Patrick 20 of May 2015:

    I was looking at your armor and some of them say that it is made of stainless steel but when you go into the order form it is only available in steel. Can you tell me which armors are available in stainless steel that meet SCA fighting standards? Thanks

    ArmStreet team:

    If the description says that armor can be made of stainless steel upon request - just add a comment to your order. We'll send an invoice for the extra charge to your PayPal email.

  • Eruantion 26 of April 2015:

    I was wondering if you considered having more alternative Elf armor, nowadays, there's an absurd amount of stuff and taking some inspiration from Weta (wink wink) couldn't hurt.

    ArmStreet team:

    We produce only uniquely designed models; we don't copy the designs of the other authors/movie costumiers/game developers etc, since it can be regarded as a violation of intellectual property rights.

  • Elijah Yager 05 of March 2014:

    I was curious as to if the heavy klappvisor bascinet etched functional SCA armor paladin came with a chin strap. Thank you, Elijah Yager

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, chin strap is included.

    Just received my helm, it fits perfect. It is by far the most comfortable medieval helm I have ever tried. The interior lining keeps your head safe during head shots and does not leave your head ringing. I could not have asked for a better helmet, thank you Armstreet.

    ArmStreet team:

    We are pleased to get such a great feedback! I will be sure to share your feedback with the armorer.

    It would be great if you share some photos!

  • Luis Bush 20 of January 2014:
