As the Crusades lasted for centuries, it is only logical that the styles of knightly head gear changed with the times. While many different variations developed, the most popular Crusader helmet was the Great Helm. This was a massive piece constructed from iron and weighing as much as 10 pounds. Though it was not the most comfortable to wear, as it got hot and limited visibility, it provided full protection for a knight’s head, making it nearly invincible to an enemy’s blow. Earlier versions were flat topped, but eventually shifted to a curved shape, which proved to be more effective. In the Late Middle Ages, Crusader helmets were largely replaced by bascinets, but their legacy lived on with uses in jousting tournaments and other occasions off the battlefield. In keeping with the knightly spirit, Armor Venue is pleased to offer our line of Crusader helmets sure to give excellent protection for your next battle.
Based on historical design, our Crusader helmets are pieces of splendor and are perfect for costumes, re-enactments, and displays. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 1-800-315-0377.
