Cheek plates were closed by a pin and this was secured with a hook or metallic wire. As it was made almost in the exact shape of the neck and chin was necessary to develop a side opening system to allow the easy removal of this helmet.

Product Description

Details

A curiosity known by few is that the Avant armour (known as this because this word is engraved on the borders) originally didn´t have a barbute as is seen in modern reproductions. The armet that matches the set was sold separately by the owner family. Nowadays it is known these two pieces are part of the same set and to own this piece is a must for any true reenactor willing to finish their "Avant" set. This armet was widely used in Italy, France, England and Spain dated in year 1420. It was used until the 16th century and some variations can be found as late as in 1620.

Typical armets are made up of four pieces: a skull with a reinforced forehead, two cheek plates attached with hinges to the skull and a pointed visor. Cheek plates were closed by a pin and this was secured with a hook or metallic wire. As it was made almost in the exact shape of the neck and chin was necessary to develop a side opening system to allow the easy removal of this helmet.

Made of 14 gauge steel with 12 gauge steel skull making it perfect for re-enactment. Features padded liner and adjustable leather chin strap. The matching gorget specifically developed for this armet is included.

Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used on its manufacturing.
