Greek Corinthian Helmet

This is an authentic reproduction of the medieval helmets worn by the Hoplite – the warriors of Ancient Greece. This helmet originated in Greece in the 7th Century B.C. and was later adopted by the Romans. It was a popular style all the way up to the 4th Century B.C. and was the basis for many Helmets of the Renaissance Period. These medieval helmets were designed to be close-fitting. Shaped to the skull with only small openings left for the eyes, nostrils and mouth. This design allowed for maximum protection, visibility and air flow. And it must have been a terrifying sight to the enemy. This helmet is made of hand-forged 18 gauge, low carbon, A-36 mild steel. This metallurgical composition provides excellent resilience, durability and will polish to high sheen.

  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
