Viking Helmet by bakabobo Viking Helmet by bakabobo
Viking helmet.
I would imagine most Vikings used slightly less ornate helmets:)

It was for sale and was sold the same week I took the picture.
I do not know the craftsman personally, but he is one of several that sells his work at various viking gatherings around Scandinavia in the summer.

Very similar to t Gjermundo helmet.

Looks like the aventail isn't laced up in the front.

Strikes me as something a later period of viking would wear. If not, then probably worn strictly by Jarls.

If the cheekbone guards are metal, that's a fine helmet.

This is not viking helmet.

This is some improvisation on pre-vikings vendel helmets from 550-793.

Only one helmet of this type from IX-XI century was found and its Giermundbu. Other helmets with oculars are vendels - or FAKES!

True, but the term viking helmet is a poor one to begin with. Viking is a verb, not the name of a people.
We were called Norsemen. So 'Norse Helmet' would be more appropriate, and would encompass all Scandinavian designs, before, during, and after the Viking Age.

The lighting is good old direct sunlight, slightly underexposed :)

I don't know. The design is Scandinavian but I did not speak with the owner and there was vikings from all over northern Europe there.

This is quite stunning. I'd do awful things to own it; say... sack a village? It's a shame one so rarely sees such fine workmanship rather than the mass produced slag that is so readily available.

Actually most vikings did'nt use helms at all, it was very rare.
Only the richest used it, and thats one of the main reason why only 1 viking helmet has ever been found(that and they reforged the material into other items once the helm got too badly damaged).
It might also been looked on as cowardly to use a helmet, in the early viking age at least, just as chainmail.

But nice picture :)

Jeg er ikke med i et vikinglag selv, men flere av vennene mine driver med blankvå;pen og reenactment med fokus på 800-1000 tallet. Så det gir anledning til en del bilder når jeg henger med dem:)

Ah okej, jeg er i et vikinglag men har ikke prøvd ut noe blankvå;pen enda, litt dyrt å få tak i alt man trenger.
Har tenkt å satse mer på langbue først og fremst :)

Nice shot! As mentioned by Beardsworth, this helm resembles the one found at the Sutton Hoo burial site. That particular helmet was actually a Roman cataphract officer's reworked by Saxon craftsmen and was probably a valued trophy.
