Like the Roman Gladiator helmet seen in "Gladiator" starring Russell Crowe. These helmets were originally designed to intimadate their opponents in the ring. Unfortunately for most enslaved Gladiators of the Roman Empire, few ever benefited from armour as finely made as this. This replica helmet is contructed of 18 guage carbon mild steel and measures 12" x 9". Medieval high quality helmets are hand crafted in the old world style. Constructed of heavy guage carbon steel these classic helmets are wearable especially with the soft arming helmet cap sold seperately.
