16th Century Close Helmet
The armorer aimed to provide better and better protection as the development of the helmet continued across the centuries. He had comfort to fret over, too, since the safest helmet in the world was totally useless if it didn't provide enough ventilation. The highly functional and effective close helmet was created towards the end of the era of the sword. This fully-operable replica has a leather liner, hooks easily, and is very easy to wear.
