In my opinion, this helmet is very well forged. It is symmetrical, with no obvious damage, rust, or misshapen pieces, and the metal is quite thick. My only objection is that it feeleth heavy to wear twoards the front, especially whilst looking down. That said, because the helm covers not the back of the head, it can be lifted up almost like a visor, allowing for temporary visibility and easier balance when not fighting. From it’s construction I would trust this helmet in a tournament, or even a battle.
