This helmet is assembled from the pattern based on Zweihammer's CAD files, there have been some layout modifications to adapt to my cutting equipment (plasma instead of water-jet or laser depending on where he was outsourcing to). I've also designed and cut the face bar panel.
12ga and 14ga Mild Steel are available. Both with a 1/4" bar face.
Padding and chin strap are required to meet SCA combat rules
Please select the size you would like, and enter in the requested measurements so that I can adjust the build to fit your head. If you are on the border, the next size up will allow for more padding options to get the fit just right. See picture at left for measurement locations.
For a better fit, please include a side profile picture of your whole head so I can work in any other adjustments that may be needed. This will allow me to better adjust the faceplates and slat curve.
The four sizes offered are:
- Small (for brows measuring 21 1/2" to 22 1/2")
- Medium (for brows measuring 22 1/2" to 23 1/2")
- Large (for brows measuring 23 1/2" to 24 1/2")
- Extra Large (for brows measuring 24 1/2" to 25 1/2")
Helm kits are geared toward SCA requirements and allow room for at least minimum padding in these size ranges. With room at the top of the scale for 1/2"+ close cell, 3/4"+ at the middle and 1"+ at the bottom. This means that if your brow measurement falls to 23 1/2" you have a choice of a Medium with room for 1/2"+ or a Large with room for 1"+.
Small variables in front to back and side to side ratios can be affected in the forming of the kit.
