The sugarloaf style of helm was the forerunner of what would become the great helm and eventually gave way to the lighter weight bascinet style. Our version is one that would have been found at the later part of the 13th century and the very beginning of the 14th century.
Its conical top deflects the glancing blows of a sword, while the antique decorative brass cross on the face sports the cross of the Knights Templar. Made of 18 gauge steel, the helm has a soft, padded adjustable liner inside, which allows for a perfect fit. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
