Plate Mail Helmet:

Plans and Actual Templates

Plans and Digital Templates



Description of the Project:

This project creates a wearable medieval plate mail helmet. The techniques used to create this helmet are mostly traditional (methods they would have used in medieval times); however, more modern processes are used occasionally to speed up some manufacturing. All manufacturing skills involved in making this helmet are very transferable to modern day skills in metal working trades. This helmet is designed for display or costume use; however, it can be used in SCA fighting by adding a face grill. Picture here show mounting holes and one posible face grill.
