Crusader Helmet - The Quintessential Great Helm
Experience the pinnacle of medieval armor with our Crusader Helmet, also known as the Great Helm. Revered for its iconic design, this helmet was a staple for knights during the High Middle Ages, particularly in the 13th and 14th centuries. Its various monikers – Pot Helm, Bucket Helm, or Barrel Helm – reflect its unique, cylindrical shape that provided unparalleled protection.
Crafted during an era of chivalry and conquest, the Crusader Helmet gained prominence during the Crusades. Its revolutionary design featured an extensive protective covering, complemented by a lift-up face mask. This innovative feature offered knights enhanced comfort both in and out of battle, ensuring constant protection while traversing perilous territories.
The barrel-style of the Great Helm not only symbolized the courage of the crusaders but also laid the groundwork for future advancements in helmet design. It evolved into the distinctive Frog-mouth Helm, a specialized helmet for jousting tournaments, showcasing the evolution of medieval armor technology.
