Those Russian helmets

I don't know the name of this piece of headgear (helmet 1844?) but it is striking and I've been very impressed by the repro ones I've seen Crimean war reenactors wearing. Must be very hard to make. Piece on them with more info here

  1. I think the name of the helmet was the same as in German: "пикельхаубе" = "Pikel'xaube" (a loanword from German "Pickelhaube"), aka "русскую каску образца 1844 года" = "russkuju kasku obraztsa 1844 goda" (about: "Russian helmet model introduced in the year 1844").
