As Armor Venue is always looking to offer customers the best in product selection and quality, the armor and weaponry retailer is now pleased to announce the launch of a new line of Roman helmets from world renowned designer, Deepeeka. Based on much research and excavation, these helmets are historically accurate and authentically crafted, making them the best reproductions available today.
Being a highly reputable manufacturer, Deepeeka is known for crafting historically accurate arms and armor, shields, helmets, and period attire. Each piece is thoroughly researched and constructed with consultation from a historical specialist. Before production begins, each product is designed to historical specifications and referenced from actual museum pieces, sketches, and manuscripts, as well as traditional forging processes passed down to ensure historical authenticity. Deepeeka’s products are used by organizations and individuals worldwide for movies and other media productions, costumes, reenactments, and many other functions.
Among Deepeeka’s helmets available on Armor Venue is the Imperial Gallic “G” Mainz helmet. Considered the “typical mid-first century legionary helmet” and continuing use into the early second century AD, this helmet is modeled after the one found in the Rhine River at Mainz-Weisenau, which is now exhibited in Worms, Germany. This reproduction is made of 18-gauge steel and has a carrying handle and brass rosettes that mirror the original Weisenau piece. Whether for wear or display, this imperial helmet is a prime addition for any collector.
Another one of Deepeeka’s products that customers will find on Armor Venue is the Roman Charioteer helmet. Made famous by the female charioteer in the film “Gladiator”, this helmet is historically accurate to the gladiator helmets of the period. It is also hand crafted from 18-gauge brass with a polished shine. It is an ideal piece for historical enthusiasts and the perfect finishing touch for a costume.
