Oh no, you think, as a sword and a Ready for Battle Helmet are thrust into your farm-calloused hands. You’ve never been trained as a soldier, let alone asked to fight on a dangerous battlefield!

But here you are, suddenly standing in a row of your neighbors. You await the advancing orc raid said to be headed for your farms and your town, and you just hope that somehow you’ll make it through. At least your Helmet feels solid on your head. That’s something to be thankful for, at least...right?

DETAILS

2’nd Quality Ready for Battle Helmet is an essential for any person intending to experience the battlefield. Considered to be one of the most important pieces of armor, this helmet is inspired by 12th century design used by the Crusaders. Its simple design allows this helmet to be used perfectly in a variety of different genres and character-types. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

2nd Quality products are shipped “as is.” Colours and aesthetics may vary, but you can still expect each product to uphold our high standard for usability and safety. This particular RFB Helmet has minor rust marks, pictured above.

Epic Armoury metal works products should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. All our metal armours contain leather parts that need regular maintenance using leather-care products to keep the leather from drying out.

Cleaning

If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.

After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

Rust-Prevention and Removal

Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.

Leather Straps and Fittings

Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
