Helms Page 2
Decorative helmets (as opposed to heavy battle helms like you would find on page 1)

Clearly, these are simply decorative helms, and are included here purely for reference...I know you have your own ideas of decorative helms in mind.




Helmets from Normandy, and other Norse Occupied Lands

#9-c

12  guage bowl cut and RIVETED back together so that is it oval in shape instead of  round.  Most people's heads are oval instead of round!
Pretty. Upgradeable.   Ready to fill in the cheeks with chain mail or solid steel if you prefer.
With spangens...these are brass spangens, but steel is more period, and in my opinion, better looking. (You would need steel spangens if you plan to upgrade this to battle ready.)
     I find that this process still allows a good half to 3/4 inch of blue foam padding at the sides.  So some people prefer this helm over the heavier "ten series" helms on page four. This helm is heavy enough to make into a real battle helm.

Sometimes people like splints on the back instead of a big old curtain plate.  No difference in price...just make sure you let me know! Splints look more period.

#9-d

....... Decorative Helm for all you Minnesota Viking fans out there!!!
An inch wide strip was cut out of this bowl, and riveted on to hold the halves together. .  The holes on the side are for the bolo string...a fancy name for chin strap.  This one flares out a bit more than usual, normally the sides are tucked in just a little tighter.

a padding of fake sheepskin always results in a perfect fit.

16 guage
Decorative.  Handmade by Bill Fedun at South Tower Armouries right here in Metcalfe, Ontario.

#9-f  Helmet Blanks 12 gauge or greater

....... Decorative Helm made from a standard South Tower spinning (10d on page 3)
I cut a half  inch out of the bowl and weld them.  such a small change results in a more oval, less bowl like shape.
 The one in the foreground is what they look like from the front, and the one in the back is what they look like from the side.
     After grinding, sculpting, cursing and polishing, they end up looking kind of nice....
You can see a bit of a cut out for the eyes in the rear most helmet...I found that is normally required so that the bowl does not come down over the eyes.  This is the basic material from which many other helms are made, so I am happy to sell them to you, to make into your own dream helm.

cut and welded helmet.............as shown.........$145.00 Canadian Dollars

leather suspension system for this helmet.....$42.00 CAN

#9-g. Norman Nasal Helmet
This is your basic Norman Helmet.  There are many variations I can do with this helmet.  For instance, I can put that nasal on the basic spinning as shown, or on the narrower cut and welded spinning illustrated above.  This particular nasal looks best in brass, but I can make the nasal in steel for about a 5 dollar savings...(better in brass...nudge nudge)

Norman Nasal Helmet...........on plain round spinning as shown...........$90.00   Canadian Dollars

Norman Nasal Helm on the cut and welded spinning such as in 9f above...................$190.00 Canadian Dollars

Norman Nasal Helm made so as to be safe for SCA combat.........see page 4

South Tower "Arthur" Helm.
 A little bit of styling, a little bit of whimsy.  My version of this helm is more "Norman" or even "East Anglian"  than "Arthurian", but hey, its not screamingly out of period!  I don't have any little bronze boars...you find one, I'll mount it on top for you!

which of course has been interpreted as this:

Of course, I can make with the spangens as well....they would pretty good too! I have some spangens (those vertical bars) shown on the next page. This particular model is just for inexpensive "light" wear, good for archers, marshals, and referees.

Arthur Helmet on the cut and welded spinning such as in 9f above (shown)...................$190.00 Canadian Dollars
