This Saxon Spangenhelm is crafted from riveted plates of steel that have been blackened. The steel cheek plates are fitted to the helm with movable hinges of leather. The rim of the cheek plates are lined with leather to ensure that a steel edge does not cut or chafe the face. The interior of the helm is unlined.
The Anglo-Saxons, like many of the ‘’dark age’’ contemporaries, favored the protective Spangenhelm. One of its strengths was that it was fairly easy to construct as it was constructed from a series of riveted plates, instead of hammered from a single piece of steel. If well-riveted and padded it would be great and essential protection for the head.
The Spangenhelm is an iconic helm of the dark ages and it persisted until the early Medieval period when it evolved into nasal bar helms crafted from a single piece of steel.
Fully wearable and functional
Handcrafted using high quality 18 gauge steel
