Meticulously hand-crafted from 16-gauge mild steel, this helmet is a testament to craftsmanship and historical detail.

Authentic Design with Modern Comforts

This Viking Rus helmet boasts a stunning design that remains true to the original historical piece. The Slavic Viking helmet features brass details that accentuate the top, creating a striking vertical line towards the point of the rounded helmet. Trefoil cut-outs further accent the brass, adding a touch of elegance to the helmet’s overall appearance.

Bold brass along the brim forms a sturdy nose guard for added protection and style. The Varangian helmet also features an adjustable leather liner inside, ensuring a comfortable and customizable fit for the wearer.

Unparalleled Protection with Chainmail Aventail

One of the most impressive features of this Viking Rus helmet is the attached chainmail aventail. The aventail is securely fastened along the brim and at the bottom edges of the nose.
