While you may think the name of the Medieval Sugar Loaf Helmet is strange, it's really not! Of all the medieval commodities, sugar was the most documented. It has been discussed as far back as 510 BC when the hungry soldiers stumbled upon reeds near the River Indus. It was later rediscovered by Alexander the Great in 327 BC when it quickly spread through Persia and the Mediterranean.

Throughout the Middle Ages, soldiers have been documented eating it, including Normans, King Richard I and Henry III. It was a food source, a delicacy and even a bartering tool.

Our classic barrel helmet is made from 18-gauge EN45 steel, solidly constructed and exquisitely replicated. It is richly decorated with brass fittings, provides solid protection and allows for adequate ventilation with a generous supply of holes around the mouth. You can put it on display or it is fully wearable for costumes.
