Medieval Helmets

Medieval helmets are among some of the most varied helmets available, coming in a variety of styles that gradually offer increasingly different levels of protection. At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a full line of medieval helmets, ranging from the early examples of great helmets to the late burgonet helmets of the later Middle Ages. Our medieval helmets come in a wide variety of styles, but they most specifically focus on the traditional helmets that were favored by first knights, and later, most cavalry and infantry soldiers who sought to keep themselves protected from the weapons of war in their age. The most common type of medieval helmet is the great helmet, which was also known by several other names, including the pot helmet, the sugar loaf helmet, and more. Great helmets are quite varied, possessing both rounded and conical tops, but generally always feature closed faces and wrap the head in steel, providing secure protection, with minimal ventilation. Other styles of medieval helmets are knightly helms and jousting helmets, which provide an impressive and almost unbeatable level of facial and cranial protection and were fairly typical of knights when they were jousting and competing. Crusader helmets feature a style similar to flat-topped great helmets, although many are better ventilated and a bit more ornate. Sallet helmets and barbute helmets are a product of the late middle ages and show an increased interest in the protection of a great helmet, without any of its typical drawbacks. All of these and more are the medieval helmets that we offer here. Each one is made from high-quality steel and is perfect for use both as a display and as a worn helm. Many are also effective protections that can be worn into battle, ensuring that when you fight in them, you feel and look like a warrior from the medieval era. If protection is the name of your game, then this medieval helmets section at Dark Knight Armoury is definitely the place you want to be, because here is where you will find some of our more impressive helmets, ones that will certainly afford you all the protection a warrior could desire on the field of battle.
