German Sturmhaube, c.1510. Raised from a welded steel dome, and lined in red fustian. Edges are rolled and roped. There is plenty of variation evidenced by original helmets of this style – some have no nasal bar, some no chin plates, some no rolled/roped edges, attachment of the lining varies, combs are different sizes, and arranged at different angles, some appear to have been tinned, cloth-covered, etc.

This style of helmet was produced in large quantities to equip levies, town guards, mercenaries, etc., and the finish reflects this reality. Despite being planished, filed, sanded, and polished, shortcuts are taken at every step to ensure that the finish matches the originals as closely as possible.
