Sweet looking spangen helm, if this is for SCA combat don't forget to check the ABC for how far apart the the bars need to be, it would suck to have all that work done and then not be able to fight in it

It is indeed for SCA combat, So I placed the bars at 7/8" intervals. I also learnt that bar grills are a lot trickier than they look.

good call on the 7/8" interval I've seen bars bent out of shape with one good hit I'm looking forward to seeing your new helm

I'm hoping for long electrical arcs between the antennae...

Maybe it's just me, but it looks like a helmet, however long electrical arks would be pretty cool.

Your right, it is a helmet. those big elevtrical looking things are actually the spring loaded temporary rivets that are holding the whole thing together.

electrical arks would be prety wicked though, but i suspect i'd zap my brain pretty good as well.

Naw, the helm would act as a Faraday cage, and your head (at least) would be snug and safe...

What is that? Is it something from the Lords Of the Rings?
