This is a shot in the dark here, but do you have any of these helms already made, from a return or something? I work a festival circuit and the helmet we have been using just isn't cutting it. My boss is going to be buying a new one for me to use, but we have little time before we open. If you don't, I completely understand. Beautiful helm, y'all.
Hi Araris, yes of course. In stock helms are marked with green sign "In Stock". Plus, we have a sepatate section called "Closeouts" where you may find returned products, some of them are brand new.
Looking at the stainless viking helm in 16 gauge. Is it possible to go full aventail with the SCA protection?
Hi Adam! Yes, it is possible
Hi, Armstreet team! Wich medieval armor fits best with this helmet? I know its an odd question, but the vikings are my ancestors and I like knights too. So why not mearge them together? I want your opinion on what this helmet fits with that is not viking related.
Hi Northern, this helmet can be worn with any armor suit you like. You may check them all here.
Could this helmet be made of 12 gauge mild steel instead? if so, how much? Thank you for your time.
Hi Braedon! Yes, it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price
Is it possible to change all the etchings to wolf designs like the viking leather bag?
Hi Eli! Yes, custom design is possible. Please contact our support team for the price
If I were to order a viking helmet before the week is out, would it possible to have it arrive before Christmas as it would be a gift.
Manufacturing of the helmet takes 42-49 days, so if you order the helmet this week, it should be ready by the beginning of November. Shipping normally takes 16-21 days, so the helmet will surely arrive before Christmas.
hi i had a question regarding Viking Combat Helmet Etched Leather Exterior Source: https://armstreet.com/store/armor/viking-combat-helmet-etched-leather-exterior is the design of the edging truly historically accurate? mainly that on the face mask (the dragons)
This is Viking-style pattern, you can learn more about the patterns in our post Viking The Viking Ornaments: Six Major Stiles. For our Vikings and Shieldmaiden collections we mostly chose the Urnes style as a source of inspiration.
What size rivets are used? I have some adjustments I need to make which will include removing some of the rivets and replacing them and I would like to find out what size rivets I should get for replacement.
Shaft diameter of the rivets is 4 mm.
Can it have the leather gorget attached at the bottom?
This helmet cannot be made with attached leather gorget, sorry.
Is it possible to get the brass mask instead, and if so, what would the cost difference be?
Can be made with two-layer mask (as here - Viking Combat Helmet Etched Leather Exterior, upper mask layer is made of brass.). Single-layer brass mask will not be strong enough. Such modification costs $40 extra.
do you have a picture of the SCA version of the viking helm before the maille is added?
SCA-grade internal hidden protection looks like additional steel plates inside of the helmet, please see how it looks here.
Do you have any photos of this helm with the SCA protection?
Interior of the helmet with SCA protection (and full-round maille) looks as shown here.
