The great helm is today especially popular amongst live-action role players and in medieval re-enactments. This type of helmet was great as it provided good protection for the head against both sharp and blunt weapons. Knights usually wore the great helm over a mail coif sometimes in conjunction with a close-fitting iron skull cap known as a cervelliere. This great helm is constructed of hand-forged 20 gauge steel with an interior leather lining with chin straps and a brass buckle. This helm has menacing narrow eye slits and a ventilated face guard for maximum protection. A beautiful brass cross adorns the center of front and stretches top to bottom and side to side. Each piece has been riveted to the frame of this helmet making it a durable and solid piece. Inside a leather suspension liner is provided for comfort and includes an adjustable chin strap with buckle. To prevent rusting and prolong the life of the helmet it comes oiled.
