  • Armet with Gorget - 12 & 14 gauge

    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.
