    I love it, perfect if you wear glasses. Leather in the helmet seem already used, but nothing that can’t be repaired in the near future. Quality of steal is good. Confortable and light weight.

    Smart. Humble. Handsome. First impressions out of the box. Came well packaged, and a good amount of protective oil (which is good).
    It has a satin brushed finish which is aesthetically pleasing to my eyes but, if you want a higher polish that would be no problem at all with some polish compound and a little elbow grease or powered tool. It has a little heft to it but once donned the weight is distributed nicely.
    The chin strap leather seems to be of good quality and once clasped it is NOT going to come off unless you want it to, excellent and important in a helmet. Most of the time I wear it unstrapped. The suspension system in the helmet is adjustable, and with a padded coif is REALLY comfortable, can wear it for hours with no issue. The leather inside is glued into place, which is good because if their is any failure its an easy repair. The steel seems sturdy for its gauge, I did a few test whacks with the wooden handle of my war mace and did not really feel anything besides pressure. These whacks would of indeed made your head bleed if there was no protection. I do NOT recommend this for anything beyond LARP, display, or light sparing. The inside of the helmet is painted black which is a good idea, helps prevent rust and eliminates glare into your eyes. If there is any chipping or erosion of the paint it can easily be touched up. The helmet is serviceable friendly it seems. Which brings me to the brim. Not to small and not too large, keeps the sun/light out of your eyes and will protect from rain. After using it I can see why the humble kettle was so effective and wide spread, not to mention its lengthy service life in history.
