The helmet, which began to be seen on the battlefield as early as the 13th century on its earliest forms proved to be a winning design to be used almost for three centuries. A simple to manufacture piece whose elongated use proves it was useful even for cavalry protection. Worn commonly over a chainmail coif or skull cap was usually built with 4 pieces riveted among them and with plain skull. It has a fierce-looking fixed visor that enhanced the already intimidating look of a charging knight.

To make the design of this piece we´ve been inspired by an statue from the Olite Cathedral dated from the middle 13th century. This kind of helmets were usually seen in the middle 13th century until beginning of 14th century as can bee seen in some documents as the Codex Manesse, the Maziejowsky bible or the Cantigas.
