"A power was in it that guarded any who wore it from wound or death, for the sword that hewed it was broken, and the dart that smote it sprang aside."
The Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin was a formidable Dwarven war helmet from the First Age. It was mostly associated with Túrin Turambar and the helmet bore a dragon on top of it, resembling Glaurung the Deceiver
The Dragon Helm was the ancient war-helm crafted by the Dwarven-smith Telchar of Nogrod. He crafted it for the Lord of Belegost, Azaghâl. Azaghâl then gifted the helmet to Maedhros who eventually passed the helmet to Fingon.
Eventually, the helmet passed to Túrin Turambar. The helmet was an heirloom in the House of Hador, it is sometimes referred to as the Helm of Hador. Húrin, however, was not of the stature as the rest of his elders. He was of lesser stature than his forefathers and because of that, he did not feel comfortable wearing the helmet. Though Túrin was of greater stature than his father and was able to unlock the magical properties of the ancient helmet. It is said that the helmet could protect the wearer from any harm or wound, major or minor.
