Review of: Knights Templar Sugarloaf Helm

Visually spectacular, the Knights Templar Sugarloaf Helm is easily the most impressive helmet in my collection.  The antique-brass cross pate' enhances the inherently harmonious lines of the helm -- a real eye catcher!

Review of: Helmet of Castile

Love it.  I have the sugarloaf helm also and I wish that one had the chin strap that this one does.  fits well and securely.  I need to adjust the liner but I'm waiting until I have time to put it on over mail and arming cap to adjust the height and test the final fit.

Review of: Helmet of Castile

I flipped out when I first saw this helm in the Museum Replicas catalog and had to have it! When i got it it was heavier than expected. But it is magnificent! I wear this with my Knights Templar tunics and it has made me feel more like a lord, rather than just a knight. I display it in my library on a stand, when I am not wearing it.
