This fully wearing Viking spectacle helmet with spike and short nose is a replica of one discovered in a burial mound on the Gjermundbu farm in the Ringerike municipality of Norway. The spectacle guard (a protective face plate resembling eyeglasses / spectacles) and the strips or bands running around the lower edge, from front to back and from ear to ear (in German, so-called Spangen) clearly show its close relationship to the crested helmets of the Vendel Period, which preceded the Viking Age.
This replica is hand-forged from steel that is 2 mm thick. Steel rivets link the domed helmet bowl, the Spangen, and the facial protection. The blackened interior features a leather suspension liner that is also riveted to the bowl, and a 1 mm thick leather chin strap that is closed with a string.
A short chainmail aventail or camail covers the neck on this helmet (for remains of an aventail could also be identified on the original find). The 4 in 1 mail weave is made up of round riveted steel rings that are 1.2 mm thick and have an inner diameter of approximately 8 mm. The aventail is affixed to the bowl's lower border immediately.
An early medieval spangenhelm that will perfectly complete your transition into a proud Norse warrior! This helmet, on the other hand, is a superb decorative addition to any helmet collector's treasure chest.
