“Olegg the Mercenary” SCA Helmet
Stainless steel Viking inspired helmet
“Never trust a man with bad eyebrows,” Olegg always told me, “it is a sign of weak character”. It’s difficult to take anything Olegg says, seriously, especially when you consider the fact that he overcompensated for his own lack of great eyebrows but riveting some onto a helmet…
This expressive helmet provides you with the best eyebrows you could possibly ask for, along with a strong nose and plentiful face protection. Inspired by helms worn by the Vikings and Vandals, this intriguing helmet is not based on any particular historical find and though there is no proof it ever existed, we still believe it could have! The back of the helmet is meant to imitate the “Olegg the Mercenary” Splint Armor, and matches the rest of the set quite beautifully.
This helmet is optimised for heavy fighting combat. Crafted from 2mm stainless steel, it is reinforced along the crown of the head for added protection from rattan blows. The “visor” part of the helm is laser cut from 5mm stainless steel and is incredibly strong, and just as reliable as any bar-grill visor. The perforated cheek protection has been cut from 2mm stainless steel and welded onto the edge of the helm. Stainless steel construction means that this helmet can take more of a beating before being dented, and will also hold up to rust much better than a mild steel helmet. Fear not the health of your helmet as you fight in the rain, just give it a quick wipe with a dry cloth and it will remain shiny and beautiful!
This helmet comes pre-padded with a historically inspired helmet lining and ready for battle. The padding is comfortable and lined with sturdy cotton. It also includes a chin strap, so you don’t have to worry about adding anything else to this helmet, it’s ready to go!
