Fashioned from four or more strips of metal, or Spangen, helmets like the Thorsten Steel Spangenhelm were simple to produce and proved effective on the battlefield. Its popularity grew from Late Antiquity into the Early Middle Ages. Handcrafted from 16 gauge steel, this Spangenhelm increases your defense during LARP or light training. It follows the classic conical shape with rivets lining the headband as well as the center bands that crisscross over the dome.
