Gjermundbu Helmet, Viking Spectacle Helmet with Chainmail Aventail, 2 mm Steel

This fully wearable Viking spectacle helmet with spike and short nasal is a reconstruction of a helmet found in a burial mound on the Gjermundbu farm in the Ringerike municipality, Norway. This Viking helmet is dated to the 9th/10th c., but its overall appearance and especially the strips or bands running around the lower edge, from front to back and from ear to ear (in German so-called Spangen), as well as the spectacle guard (a protective face plate resembling eyeglasses / spectacles) clearly show its close relationship to the crested helmets of the Vendel Period, which preceded the Viking Age.

This reproduction is hand-forged from 2 mm thick steel. The domed helmet bowl, the Spangen and the face protection are all connected by steel rivets. The blackened interior is fitted with a leather suspension liner, also attached to the bowl with rivets, and the 1 mm thick leather chin strap closes with a cord.

The helmet features a short chainmail aventail or camail that protects the neck (for remains of an aventail could also be identified on the original find). The 4 in 1 mail weave is composed of 1.2 mm thick, round riveted steel rings with an inner diameter of approx. 8 mm. The aventail is directly attached to the lower edge of the bowl.

An early medieval spangenhelm that will make your transformation into a proud Norse warrior just perfect! But of course, this helmet also makes for a great, decorative addition to any helmet collector's treasure chamber.
