The South Tower battle helm is every thing you want in a helm! Big, heavy, solid, and inexpensive.
This is far and away the most popular helm I have ever made.
We call this one the 10Ga...not because the skull is spun out of
piece of 10 gauge steel, which in fact, it is, but rather because
back in the day of paper catalogues, this one was the 7th one down
on page 10.
The flip-up visor version:
Warranty info on this helm.....will pass an SCA,
AEMMA or JFof
C Marshalate inspection for a full year from purchase or I will
replace it free. Note that the leather belt is considered to
consumable item...like tires or brakes on a car. It is
by the owner, I will send a replacement belt to you with rivets
Also, newer versions have extra lace holes specifically made for
field repairs should that big ole leather strap actually break, or
buckle become mangled. The buckle is placed on the
of the head to minimize this eventuality, but hey, you might be
a bunch of southpaws!!

Heavy Battle Helm,
South Tower Design.
....... Helm made from spinning
(SCA combat ready)
includes all the breaths as shown, plus a very simple chin strap
(note...these chin straps are laced on....some Kingdoms require
that the chin straps be riveted on. The lace holes can function
just fine as rivet holes in such an application, and I will send
you the rivets upon request.)
This is the same helm as the 10i, but without the spangens.
This helm is not supplied with padding.
The standard leather suspension system is unsuitable for SCA applications.
note...this helm is available with decorative spangens. See helm 10i
Viking Style Battle Helm with Spangens.
....... Viking style helm made from spun top
12 guage with or without reinforcing spangens. Another pic of the
for a side view .
(SCA combat ready)
Different spangens... just cool items I have made in the
They will nest neatly onto any of the above helms.
Clearly these are special order items and some will be very time intensive....send me your ideas and I will quote you a price.
Obelix style Wings...
Barrel Helm, Battle Ready
Plain Barrel Helm, as made by basement SCA armourers everywhere! Nice, simple, inexpensive. Very period looking, very handsome in my opinion. Some have refered to the top as a landing pad for a sword....little do they know! Most sword blows come from the side, and the low profile allows the wearer to duck or roll with the punch (so to speak) much more easily than a higher profile helm. This one provides lots of padding for the head all around. Very popular.
The pic shows a barrel helm with a plain nasal. Clearly it cries
for fancifying! Below are some nice ones with fancy 20
even grill faces!

A quick note on customizing.....
Any customizing is at the owner's risk, payable in advance, and the "customizing" part of the deal is non-refundable. For instance, if you got me to make you a barrel helm with 40 bucks worth of brass work, the helm and brass work must be paid for in advance. If you back out of the deal, thats fine, you get money back for your barrel helm but not for the custom stuff because after all, I DID do the work. (Unless of course, the work I did was clearly crap...in which case we all agree to throw it in the bin and start over. I don't want crap "out there" any more than you do!)
I also reserve the right to "get artistic" at my own expense, mostly because I find that making barrel helms all day can be very boring... you get a chance to see it before I ship it, so if you find I made something you wouldn't be caught dead in, you get your chance to reject it before getting stuck for shipping payments. I don't face rejection very often so I guess people like my stuff. For instance all the decoration on the barrel helms here here and here were random designs out of my imagination...grin!
I need the above measurements to fit you properly
A. eye line to shoulder armour
B. how far around at eyebrow level
C. Size of head front to back
D. Size of head side to side
