Custom welding helmet features koi fish, dragon artwork

August 28, 2012

Matheson has announced the second in its series of Select® Limited Edition custom welding helmets.

Designed by Freddy Sicoli of Killer Kreations in Philadelphia, the helmet design art was originally done by airbrush. The design features a dragon on one side and a koi fish on the other.

The second helmet is available in light-duty and all-duty models. The light-duty helmet comes with three shade types: auto-darkening variable shade, auto-darkening fixed shade, and passive shade. The auto-darkening shades have been upgraded with digital technology and are controlled by two independent arc sensors. The all-duty model, available later in 2012, will feature a heavy-duty helmet structure and additional shade features. Both models include a built-in magnifying lens holder.
