Our heavy duty 13thCE French knights helmet is a super strong helm and is made from 14ga (1.63mm) steel, with an additional 13-12ga (1.83-2.05mm) reinforced polished steel face plate. It is a heavy duty, full coverage battle helm and is typical of the type used during the Crusader era. The solid construction features a reinforced crown and cross on the fixed face plate with chin strap. It also has a perforated face area for good air flow. It is a comfortable helmet with padding that provides superior protection.
