Helmets

Memo for helmet buyers.

How do you know how to make a perfect helmet for my beloved head?
This is a common question from our customers. In this article we’ll try to shed some light on the issue.


We are not only engaged into the armor manufacturing. We regularly participate in historical festivals, combats and film shootings, and here we offer you our own experience. If you decided to order a helmet, the first thing to do is to determine what you need your helmet for: for theater, for a film or for real combats.
Regarding helmets for theater and films, it’s rather clear: these helmets should be light, comfortable and stainless. Let’s now consider in more detail the helmets for combats.
1. Material and its thickness. What will they strike you with? Steel halberds and plastic swords have a completely different penetration force. You have to choose the thickness and material of the helmet’s dome. For serious full contact combats or buhurt fights we recommend titanium 1.5 mm, stainless steel 2 mm, hardened steel 2 mm or, if the budget isn’t that big, normal steel 2.5 mm.
2. Padded liner. We DO NOT recommend using padded caps which are simply put on the head, it is very unsafe. Liner has to be sewn or riveted to the helmet (by its edge, so that some void space remains between liner and top of the helmet). Only this design distributes the strike energy evenly over a large area, and a considerable part of this energy is lost by stretching the liner fabric. Practicing the historical fencing for more than 10 years and constantly participating in battles, tournaments and competitions, we have never received a head injury. At the same time we saw a lot of cases, when guys got a severe concussion when using "simple and convenient" quilted or padded caps.
3. Size of the helmet. Having decided the purpose of your helmet (for plays or for fights), write this to our manager. If it is for plays, we’ll make you a small helmet, tightly sitting on your head. If it is for fights, you will get a helmet which has enough space for a good liner. There will be a space of 2 cm from your temple to the helm (filled with the liner) and 3-4 cm your crown to the dome (filled with the liner and some void space).

Some clients wonder why out helmets seem so large. We’ll try to clear this up. If the distance between the helmet and your head is less than 1.5 cm, after a good blow you run the risk to get concussion of the brain or closed craniocerebral injury. Our task is to provide you with a high quality and safe armour, so the abovementioned reasonings cannot be neglected.
Some figures for better understanding:
- If the head circumference is 58 cm, the helmet circumference is 71-74 cm
- If the head circumference is 60 cm, the helmet circumference is 73-77 cm
- If the head circumference is 62 cm, the helmet circumference is 75-79 cm
To ensure that everything fits perfectly, we recommend to order fighting helmets together with installed liners.

If, having understood everything written here, you have some special requests regarding your helmet size, please write to our manager.

And finally, a few words about the neck protection. This is an issue to which many newcomers do not pay the proper attention or even ignore it. But it’s very easy to get a serious injury, such as fracture of clavicle or shoulder, or serious injury of the cervical spine, if you forget about the protection of your neck. We strongly recommend using of additional (hidden) neck protection for helmets like Chapelle or Norman, as well as for other types of helmets without rigid protection of neck. And of course you need a set of padded and chainmail aventails.
How to test whether your neck is protected well? It’s easy! Put the helmet on and bend your head to the utmost position forward, backward, left and right. Let your friend look at your neck and check if there are any unprotected spots.

Do not forget: admission to the tournament is one thing, but a severe trauma received due to poor protection is quite a different issue. Safety is above all!

 

Also, Steel Mastery prepared few interesting articles about helmets for you. 

In the article "Bascinet" we tell about of one of the most popular medeival head protection - helmet bascinet. In the second part "Visors of bascinets" there is detailed review of different types of visors - there were a large variety of them! 

And here we explain how to craft bascinet with curved visor by yourself. Read, try and share your experience at Steel Mastery page on Facebook!
