Gjermundbu Viking helmet

Sale price$236.00 USD

A nice handmade reproduction of the Gjermundbu helmet. This model is made like the original and works for both combat and as a very nice decoration on the bookshelf. The helmet has several nice details such as the bronze chin buckle, also a found replica, and the nice high quality padded leather lining.

We have started from drawings of the find and tried to get as close as possible. However, we have adjusted the size and given it a leather lining with suspension and chin strap. The helmet is designed to withstand use in various types of historical fencing and has 1.2 millimeter thick steel, which, just like the original, is reinforced with cross-curved bands.

For safety reasons, the helmet is both welded on the inside and riveted on the outside. The helmet's cup is only made of two cleft-shaped parts, instead of four, which also gives the helmet increased strength.

The original Gjermundbu helmet is the only surviving Viking helmet from the Nordic region. It was found during the excavations of a rich warrior grave, not so far from Oslo, the capital of Norway. In addition to the helmet, there was also everything else a Viking warrior could possibly need, such as swords, axes, spears and shields.

The helmet is also equipped with the Nordlys™ "blacksmith's mark" which guarantees the quality and that it comes from our forge.

Specifications:

Steel thickness 1.2 mm

Size: M/L 59-62
