Hunting a Great Helm

Postby Brendan C » Wed Mar 29, 2017 7:27 pm

Greetings everyone

Am looking to get an early to mid 13th century great helm - preferably one that can be made to fit me

It has been decades since I bought a new helm - any suggestions as to who would be worth contacting (and if they will be at TORM in November?)

Many thanks

Brendan C

I got one for mid-13th century, customised from Kovex Ars and I love it. Highly recommended.

cevalier first and then great helm ?

Covex don't do TORM

Dressed to Kill made Andy's yonks ago


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Have had the full face one for about 20 years, felt I needed the next one up

Have a Dressed to Kill Great Helm, but it doesn't fit properly - really looking for someone who can take the measurements and build one

Hi Brendan was it made for you ?

Mark makes all of his stuff for folks I have about 3 of his helmets all fit well

Is it possible that you have mixed up suppliers

Think it was 'bought off the shelf' - via the website

If Mark is at TORM in November, am more than happy to see if he can put something together

Is the helm to be worn for reenactment or full contact?
