Greek Corinthian Helmet


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.

The Corinthian Helmet originated in ancient Greece which took its name from the city-state of Corinth. It was a helmet made of ancient metals which in its later styles covered the entire head and neck, with slits for the eyes and mouth. A large curved projection protected the nape of the neck. It also protected the cheek bones, which Greeks adored. Out of combat, a Greek hoplite would wear the helmet tipped upward for comfort. This practice gave rise to a series of variant forms in Italy, where the slits were almost closed, since the helmet was no longer pulled over the face but worn cap-like. Although the classical Corinthian helmet fell out of use among the Greeks in favour of more open types, still it remained in use until the 1st century AD by the Roman army. Made of 18 gauge Carbon Steel ,this helmet is favourite of reenactors and collectors.

    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
