Hi sorry for a silly question. I really love the look of this helmet so so much. is there a complete armour set that matches this helmet. if not I also really love the look of the kings guard armour set will it look to much out of place having this helmet with the kings guard set. look forward to your opinion. :)
This helmet doesn`t have the matching armor kit. It can look good with the King`s Guard armour set, if the set will be ordered with no etching. To order the set without etching, please just mention it in the comments to your order.
Is there any way to attach an aventail to this?
Yes, we can attach an aventail to this helmet for $100.00 extra. Please order via our website and mention in the comments to the order that you need it with the aventail attached. After that we`ll send you a PayPal invoice for the extra charge.
Hi, I'm in a heavy steel fighting group and the requirements say that our helmets must be a minimum of 13 gauge stainless steel (or 12 gauge mild). Is there a way that you could do this? If so, what would the price difference be? Thanks for your time, Laurel
2.5 mm mild steel (12 ga) is available for +25% extra. If this works for you, please order via the site and add a comment to your order. We'll send an invoice for the extra charge to your PayPal email.
I just received this helm today and it is AMAZING! Thank you very much for prompt communication and attention to detail. I just have one question, in your experience what is the best way to care for this helm's metal? What do you recommend doing to keep it's luster and overall looking like a monster on the field? Thanks again!
Great, many thanks for your feedback, Phil!
Armor made of stainless steel doesn't require any special care. You can clean and polish it with a dry soft cloth and some sort of oil (for example, waste engine oil). Do not polish the surface with the abrasive materials. Water ingress is permissible, but not desirable (do not wipe it with a damp cloth, do not immerse in water, do not wash in the washing machine). After each use, the helmet should be cleaned and wiped dry. Keep it in dry ventilated area, sudden temperature changes must be excluded. Before the long-term storage, make sure that the helm is clean, dry and completely covered with oil.
How much extra would it cost to add etching to this helm to match the kings guard set, if purchased seperately?
This helmet cannot be made with “The King's Guard” style etching, sorry.

Hi there. I was trying to order your sca sugarloaf with visor safety pin. I need the upgrade to 14ga stainless steel. I went through the checkout and it was going to charge me for the price without the upgrade. How do I order it with the upgrade?
Now this helmet comes in stainless 14 ga steel by default, no extra charges.
Rather than a Pin would i be able to get a leather strap on the bottom on the visor to fix it down? and would you be able to add a bargrill as well?
Pin can not be replaced with the leather strap, sorry.SCA bargrill can be made for bascinet type helmets only.
