Medieval Turban Type Helmet

Iranian early turban helm, mid 14th c.

The design of this great combat helmet is based on Iranian turban helmet and realized in 14 gauge steel. The helmet is hand-hammered of 2 mm stainless steel. Nosal element is made of extremely reliable 4 mm spring steel.

The originals of the early turban helmets are kept in the Topkapi Museum, in Istanbul, Turkey. Most likely, they are of Iranian origin and date back to the mid 14th century, but some believe they initially appeared in Turkey. Their dome was solid or riveted of several petals and reached the level of the nasal bridge. It had half-cuts for the eyes with riveted metal brow ridges above them. Such turbans were in in the second half of the 15th - 16th centuries in Turkey, Iran, and Mamluk Egypt.

Unusual early turban helm is fully handmade and hand-polished.

    What type of mail aventail do you use?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Andrew, the helmet can be made with riveted or butted aventail. 

  • Renee 05 of December 2016:

    what is the difference between hidden face protection for turban helms and sca for $50??

    ArmStreet team:

    There is no difference, it is the same thing. By default the helmet goes with no hidden protection plates.  You can find more info about our SCA hidden protection here.

  • Björn 06 of February 2014:

    Hello, Do you have any pictures of the difference between mirror and satin polish on your helmets? Also is it possible to order this helmet with a removable grille for SCA fighting? (I am going to use it both at larp and sca) Also which helmet is it inspired from? What time/century? Sassanid? Best regards, Björn

    ArmStreet team:

    You can see the difference on the example of two "Sugarloaf" helmets.
    SCA bargrill can be made for bascinet type helmets only.
    Inspired by Iranian and Turkish helmets.

  • Alex 12 of January 2011:

    Hi, is the chainmail riveted, butted or welded on this? If it is butted can you do it rivveted?

    ArmStreet team:

    The aventail is butted, to date it cannot be changed to the riveted one, sorry.
