Crusader Helms from Medieval Collectables

Crusader helms started out as a simple cylinder with a flate top called a Great helm or a pot helm. Later the helm developed into a curved shaped that was pointed on top called a sugarloaf helm. This newly design of the knights helm deflected the blow from sword attacks and lance or spear attacks. These types of Crusader helms had small slits for the eyes and mouth which provided poor ventilation and poor line of sight. Crusader helms were usually put on before battle because of the thick steel used making the helm heavy. Medieval Collectables has all types of Crusader helms like the great helm, sugarloaf helm and the bascinet. Don't forget the Crusader helm is a very important piece and functional of a knights armor.
