Viking helmet or gjermundbu helmet in 2 mm thick steel, with riveted chain bristre - suitable for action. This viking helmet or gjermundbu helmet was worked after a find. The original is dated 970 ad and is now on display at the museum of national atiquities (oldsaksamlinga) in oslo. The helmet and in particular its braces also show the close relationship to the helmet group of the so-called norid comb helmets. Its helmet bell consists of 2 parts of 2 mm thick steel, which has been driven and welded cleanly.
The tip of the helmet can be easily removed by unscrewing. For reinforcement, 4 iron bands were attached to the helmet bell. The handmade glasses made of just 2 mm thick steel were riveted. The glasses were also provided with the same chiccule, which also has the original. It also features a single-riveted, very high-quality adjustable upholstery inlet and a sturdy leather chin strap with brass buckle.
The chain bristre was made of rings that were completely rimmed, which were closed by round rivets.
