Fantasy theme gave a significant push for hobbys in one way or another connected with fencing and armor developing. Of course we can not ingnore this direction. In general, if you want to collect the most realistic fantasy armor - we are at your service! Especially since our armor has a nice design and you can create the necessary image with it.
Part of our armor elements are also suitable for HEMA. But in the future we plan to develop mittens, elbows, knees, etc specially for this direction. Part of our armor elements are also suitable for HEMA. But in the future we plan to develop specially for this discipline mittens, elbows, knees, etc. This direction of fencing is based on medieval fencing books (training books) and special very flexible and light swords are used here.
In fighting stylization, we first of all provide protection and convenience. When developing such armor, we combine the existing elements and parts of the medieval armor existing separately, but in close regions and time frames.
In historical reconstruction, we try to maximally repeat the geometry of the example artifact. The difficulty is that often both the example and the artifact are located far from us. Therefore, such work requires considerable skill.
Forging steel face Bagatur. Eastern style helmet for fighting.
Why Bagatur? Bagatur is a hero of legends and tales, sung about in fierce Eastern epos, closest to Genghis Khan himself. One look from him has his enemies feared and his allies glad, that this warrior is not their enemy. Since 1204 bahaturs were a special thousand in Kheshig, guard of the Khans of the Mongol state. I think this name goes good with this helmet.
As it is known, European armor is the most suited armor for medieval sports fight. But what about armor from Kyiv Rus or East? I combined the short spheroconic helmet, face mask and added a steel strap, which protects the neck. The fabric covers the lower part, which is the most unusual detail for the Eastern-style helmets. This resulted in the helmet, East stylized, without any ties to artifacts, region or dates. But it looks nice and provides the needed protection in fights with the steel weapon.
The spheroconic helmets were used by various nations. Such construction can be found all around Eurasia in one form or another. Such helmets had been made starting from the times BC and up until the 17-18 cent. In different regions, such helmets were found from time to time, but one can tell that in the 14-16 cent. Eastern countries didn’t have such developed armor production as they had in Europe. Which is why such simple helmets were used up until the 18th cent.
The face masks were not as popular, but the protection with the shape of the face is found among Vendel helmets of the 7th cent. from Sutton Hoo, as well as among helmets of the 16th cent. found on Iranian territories. Besides, this type of protection is also common in medieval Japan.
That is why I forged this helmet, combining Eastern style and main principles of protection of the European helmets. The spheroconic helmet with face mask, East stylized. Under the fabric is the plate which was not characteristic for the light Eastern helmet.
