  • German Sallet - 16 gauge

  • Late Transitional Sallet - 14 gauge

    1 Review(s)

    Near to the end of 15th-century, sallets began a transformation into the shapes known as "transitional". This replica is based on a piece known as A72 from the Wallace Collection dated on 1520 and is attributed to have been manufactured in the north of Italy. It was likely used with a gorget without bevor and belonged to the collection of the Count of Nieuwerkerke, and acquired by Sir Richard Wallace in 1871. This style of sallet can be seen in the painting by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc in his piece “Castles and Warfare in the Middle Ages”.

    Made of 2mm steel with a 1.6mm steel faceplate. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. The steel is untreated and may have rust. To protect the steel you may rub it with a mineral or synthetic oil. Leather chin strap included.

    Size M: 60-61 cm perimeter
    Size L: 63-64 cm perimeter

  • Early Bascinet with Visor - 14 gauge

    Bascinets were one of the favourite choices of helmet in the 14th century and 15th century. It was probably an evolution of the cabasset used under the helmet by both cavalry and infantry. Some variations of this item were used with coif instead of aventail. This design is based on several artistic representations dating from the first quarter of the 14th century and is common in the Spanish peninsula.

    Its pyramidal grill system in the visor offers an excellent defence as well as an optimal vision. The visor is foldable and has a pin system that allows a quick unmount if needed. Made in 2mm steel with 1.6mm visor. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. The steel is untreated and may have rust. To protect the steel you may rub it with mineral or synthetic oil. Leather chin strap included.

    Size M: 60-61 cm perimeter
    Size L: 63-64 cm perimeter
