Crusader Helmets

Crusader helms started out as a simple cylinder with a flat top called a great helm or pot helm. Later, the medieval helm developed into a curved shape that was pointed on top called a sugarloaf helm. This new design of the knights helm deflected the blows from sword, lance, or spear attacks. These types of Crusader helmets had small slits for the eyes and mouth, which provided poor ventilation and poor line of sight. Crusader knight helms were usually put on just before battle because the thick steel used made the design very heavy. We carry many types of Crusader helms like the Crusader great helm, Hospitaler helmets, Crusader sugarloaf helm, Templar helms, and the Crusader bascinet, among others. Do not forget this very important piece of a knights armour as you create your outfit!
