Thraex Helmet Materials

Just like we mentioned, our Thraex helmet is made from mild steel, while the fittings are made from brass.

We chose mild steel for the body of our helmet since it is more cost-efficient. Aside from that, it has low carbon levels, which makes forming the steel easier. Basically, mild steel is easier to manage and work with while providing adequate toughness and durability.

To make things better, our helmet is made to be more comfortable. So, you won’t have to worry about unnecessary pressure on your head when using it. Inside, our Thraex helmet is lined with leather to give you a perfectly snug fit even during prolonged wear.

We chose this material for the lining since leather breathes. It means that it can dissipate both heat and cold quickly. So no matter what the weather is, you can wear our Thraex helmet with comfort.

Plus, leather readily absorbs and releases moisture, so it’s less clammy and sticky compared to other materials.

If you want a medieval piece that looks great and feels comfortable, our Thraex helmet is a great option. Include it in your collection of helmets or sets of medieval pieces. Or work it as the eye-catching centerpiece that decorates your home.

The Thraex in History

In the past, the Thraex helmet was better known as the Thracian helm.

Its name was taken from the warriors of Thrace. The Thracians were Roman gladiators who also wielded the Thracian-styled shield known as the parmula. The shield was shaped in a circular, square, or rectangular manner.

These warriors also wielded the sica (short sword) that had a slight arch to its blade. This feature of the sword was for aiming at the enemy’s unprotected back.

These warriors wore ornate Thraex helmets with tall crests that terminated in the head of the griffin. It was designed with feathers worn using sockets on the helmet’s sides. There was a removable plume, which could be fixed to the crest.

These warriors wore additional armor which included greaves or protection for their shoulder and arms. To add to these, they even wore protective belts at the top of loincloth.
