  • Sugar Loaf Helmet with Visor – 14 gauge - Large

    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 with Visor from GDFB, built to comply with SCA regulations, is both aesthetically appealing and highly functional. Crafted in 14 gauge steel with its great cross overlaid in brass, the helm has a movable visor, excellent ventilation and full padding. Perfect for the re-enactment field.

    Weight: 4.5kg

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

  • 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

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

  • Archer's Sallet - 14 gauge - Large

    As with the bellows face sallet it is not clear at first glance why this helmet is a sallet and not a bascinet with a very low reaching neck protection. The difference lies in the brow plate (reinforcement on the forehead) which is only found on sallets. This Archer’s Helmet was especially popular with bowman. It is hand-beaten out of 14 gauge steel, welded and polished to finish. Perfect for re-enactment. Features adjustable leather liner and chin strap.
