The English Close Helmet made by Deepeeka is an accurate replica ornate based off historical research and authentic in its design. The close helm was a military helmet worn by knights and other combatants in the late medieval and early renaissance era. It carried a visor that pivoted up and fully enclosed the head and neck area, unlike earlier helms such as the sallet and barbute, which sometimes may have left the wearer more exposed, or needed a bevor to be added to protect the chin and neck. Our version is made of solid steel and comes with face guard with metal bars and rivets. Fully functional and wearable. This is pefect for display in your home, to wear to the next Ren Fair or to simply impress your friends!
