Montefortino helmet

One of the earliest Medieval helmets of time is the Montefortino helmet – a kind of Celtic, then later Roman helm. Of course, this helmet is part of our collection of Medieval pieces that you can choose from.

This was a war helmet utilized around 300 BC, then lasted until the 1st century AD. To note, it’s a helmet named after the Montefortino region in Italy, where the very first Montefortino helmet was seen.

Characteristics of Our Montefortino Helmet

Our Montefortino helmet sports an attractively intricate design that’s based close to the traditional helmet of history. It comes with a rounded cap just like the original, which was excellent for deflecting blows to the head.

It’s also a short-knobbed helmet that’s featured at the top. Today, it may come off as just for decorative purposes, but it was necessary for defensive measures in the past.

Looking at our Montefortino helmet, it has a wider rim compared to some other helmets. This was a design used before to divert various assaults that can easily remove the helmet from the user.

You’ll see that there are cheek guards present as well, which are fixed to the helmet’s design. The nice thing about the Montefortino helmet is that it has adequate space for the eyes and nose. When worn, you’ll get a better view and enhanced comfort.

Our Montefortino helmet comes with a neck guard that sticks out nicely.

Today, the design of the helmet is entirely for aesthetics. In history, these features were vital for protecting the wearer.

Materials and Exterior

Our helmet is made using brass and comes with a nicely-polished finish with golden hints. This adds to the helmet’s beauty and aesthetic value.

Brass comes with many benefits, like increased malleability compared to zinc and bronze. Using this material for our helmet allows the creation of it to be easier. The right shape of the helmet can be formed easily, giving you the perfect Montefortino helmet.

Additionally, we utilized brass for easier cleaning and maintenance, making it easier to keep the helmet looking pristine. The most you can do to clean our helmet for most cleaning is using warm water and a washcloth.

Because of its natural beauty, brass gives our Montefortino helmet its traditional look, making it an excellent centerpiece for display.

If you’re wondering about the thickness of the brass utilized for the helmet, it’s crafted with 1.2mm of brass. We also included leather liners to the helmet to mimic the original.
