  • Open Face Sallet - 16 gauge

    The sallet was a war helmet that replaced the bascinet in Italy, western and northern Europe and Hungary during the mid-15th century. In Italy, France and England the armet helmet was also popular, but in Germany, the sallet became almost universal. The large amount of artistic representation and original pieces indicate that even with a slight German predominancy, this was a common choice of helmet throughout Europe. This specific model, with back tail and without a visor, was commonly used by infantry and mercenaries due to its versatility.

    Made of 1.6mm steel. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture.

    Perimeter: 63-64 cm

  • Sugar Loaf Helmet

    The Sugar Loaf helmet, so called because of its similarity in shape to the traditional "Sugar Loaves" that sugar was traditionally sold in, was a later variant of the Great Helm and was used throughout the 13th and 14th Centuries. This style of helmet saw use in many famous battles of the period and was also worn by Crusaders. The domed top was much better at deflecting blows than the flat topped Great Helms.

    Our Sugar Loaf Helmet is hand crafted from 18 gauge steel and decorated with a brass cross. It comes complete with separate padding lining cap that can be glued in if required. Not recommended for contact re-enactment.
