With a thunk the crude wooden arrow clatters against the sturdy metal of Raven helmet. With a roar you charge the roughly dressed bandit before you, lifting your weapon high to cleave him in twain.
You’ve always believed skyforge steel is best and your armour reflects that fact. From the tip of your helmet to the base of your boots, your dark armour gleams in the sun where it’s covered with the blood of your enemies.
Epic Armoury’s Epic Dark Raven Helmet is a skull cap helmet inspired by the spangenhelm of the early medieval period. The beak shaped face guard and metal cheek flaps provide great protection and visibility to the face, while the chainmail aventail provides protection to the neck. Reinforced with rivets, a combed apex, and a steel band around the rim, you can expect this helmet to stand up against any who should stand against you.
Secure the Raven Helmet by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Epic Armoury Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, but 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.
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.
