Embark on a journey through time with the 10th Century Varangian Helmet, meticulously handcrafted from robust 14 gauge mild steel. This remarkable piece of historical craftsmanship will transport you to the era of fierce Norse warriors and legendary battles.

Based on a remarkable 10th-century finding from the Slavic-Varangian settlement of Gnezdovo, this helmet is a testament to the rich heritage and fierce warrior spirit of the Viking Age.

Historically Inspired Design

Historical inspiration and careful construction provides unwavering attention to every detail. This Viking Rus helmet features a rounded shape that comes to a point at the very top and center of the helm. Vertical brass accents line the front, back, and sides of the helmet. Brass also accents the brim, extending down to form nose guard. Trefoil cut-outs detail the brass.

Adorned and reinforced with these striking brass accents, this helmet not only showcases ornate detail but also provides additional protection. The prominent nose guard, covered in that gleaming brass trim, adds an authentic touch while offering enhanced safety during reenactment battles.

Chainmail Aventail for Extra Defense

For those seeking the ultimate in historical accuracy and protection, our Viking helmet features an attached chainmail aventail. The aventail is attached along the brass trim that accents the brim. This intricately crafted chainmail extends coverage to the sides of the face. Also attached at the nose, it shields the lower half of the face. It thus leaves the eyes uncovered for greater vision on the battlefield. The aventail drapes elegantly down the front, back, and sides of the neck, providing comprehensive protection.

Next, the adjustable leather liner ensures a comfortable and secure fit. Feel extra secure with its leather chin strap, fastened with a solid brass buckle for both durability and period-correct style.
