Our reproduction is HANDMADE from 16-gauge mild steel, lined with a comfortable and secure leather liner and a butted mail aventail. An approximate circumference of 68 cm (without liner) allows it to fit almost all head sizes (65 cm with liner). A leather strap and brass buckle closure keep it secure through all battles. It has a height of about 25.5 cm with a (24.5×21) cm base. Weighs about 4 Kg 52 grams.
Note: This product is carefully coated with a layer of oil when packaged that acts as a temporary (protective) layer against corrosion (rust), which can easily be wiped off using any oil remover or even a dry cloth.
Our reproduction is directly inspired by an original found in a 10th-century Slavic-Varangian settlement named Gnezdovo or Gnyozdovo near Smolensk in modern-day Russia. Many typical Scandinavian artefacts have been found simultaneously with this helmet, making it a good choice for anyone wanting to reenact an eastern Viking / Varangian / Russ / Slav character. However, this helmet may not be suitable if you’re depicting a Western Viking raiding England.
