Yes, my first thought of course was a nasal helm, but then I realized that I never see kettle helms being worn.  I more or less want one just because no one else wears them.

Don't like to be like the rest of the herd. I Understand that completely DB.  However, be careful as you know in time you could and may eventually end up having the entire "Crusader Grand Helmet Slam" which consist of a "kettle, a nasal, tranny and a grand!  It happens to the best of us......Deus Vult!







Well I just got mine this week...Woohoo!!!
Now here is my question and I know I asked warior monk on this. What is the best padding to put in these and where do i get it?

If you're not worried about historical accuracy, most of the heavy fighters in my SCA group get the foam camp mattress pads and cut them up to fit.  These are blue versions of the sleeping mat that the Army issues.

You could put wool felt in the top to add some padding to the top.  I made two "donuts" out of leather and wool filling.  One is glued into the top of the helmet with several layers of wool felt above it.  The other is worn on my head like a bandana on the outside of the coif.  When I put the helm on it butts right against the glued one and keeps the helm tight to the head so it doesn't rock much, especially when I am wearing the crest, wreath, and mantling.  I know there are also some more elaborate suspension systems in helms, but we know the donuts where accurate too.  I guess it depends how H/A and how complicated you want it.  Hope that helps some.  Good luck.  Beautiful helm.

Congrats Sleepy! Look forward to seeing new shots! Be wary though for by its' sheer brilliance and awesomeness, DB may want to also wear it!!  ;)

And as Frere William has warned you, be careful.....I've been down the road he speaks of, and wear the t-shirt!  :P

Here are a few more helms offered from "By The Sword" to drool over.








Yup the first one is on my list now, just as soon as I pay off a few things and get my season passes for fest for me and the wife. I am not a kettle guy I dont look good in the nasal so I would only get a kettle for show on a shelf. If DB wants he could always wear the nasal. Hes got a bigger head than me and may fill it better, I have a narrow head and no hair.

Now that is outstanding.
Always on the lookout for my next noble cause.

And because a flail don't need reloading, that's why.
