OVERVIEW

This style of helmet originated in ancient Greece and takes its name from the city-state of Corinth. It was one of the most popular helmets during the early Classical periods.

Our version is made of 18-gauge steel and has been plated in an antique bronze. A black and natural striped horse-hair crest makes this a truly stunning piece. Finally, a padded, soft adjustable liner and chin strap make this helm easy to wear. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

The best of its kind
There are only a few good Corinthian-style helmet reproductions out there: this is one of them.  I have seen real Corinthian helmets--- they have hauntingly graceful lines.  
Many wearable reproductions are crude and unsatisfying, and most of the better ones are too small.  The pretty-looking reproductions from Greece are heavy cast bronze: unwearable and inauthentic.  
This one is large enough to fit a size-8 head, and has that certain look around the eye holes that the best examples from antiquity possessed.  It is serviceable steel, but light and wearable.  I might face blows in this one, whereas my other delicately realistic brass one seems better only for display.
