|A Step-by-Step Guide to Making a Medieval Great Helm|
|by Peter Fuller|
|Peter Fuller is one of the most accomplished armorers in the world today. Through years of painstaking research and examination of actual period armor, he re-created the traditional skills of armorcraft and literally rediscovered this lost art. Now he makes it available to you. In this phenomenal DVD, Fuller takes you step by step through the process of making a medieval great helm--one of the landmark achievements in the development of armor and a piece coveted by collectors and reenactors alike. Fuller covers every step of this project in meticulous detail, including cutting and profiling the pieces, shaping and fitting, riveting and assembly, sanding and polishing, and constructing and adjusting the leather harness. In the process, he also presents never-before-seen instruction in the lesser-known skills of armorcraft, including "raising" metal to create the domed cap of the helmet. The skills taught in this video will not only enable you to make your own historically accurate, battle-worthy helmet, they represent a comprehensive apprenticeship in the armorers craft.|
Every video includes full-scale patterns for the helm and specialized armor-making tools. Color, approx. 180 min.
