Product Description

Details

The Pigface Bascinet helmet or Hounskull (from the German "Hound's Hood") was a popular helmet from the 14th Century as was worn by both English and French knights at famous battles such as Crecy (1346) and Poitiers (1356). A depiction of this style of bascinet can be seen on the monumental brass of Sir Hugh Hastings in St Mary's Church in Elsing, Norfolk.

This Pigface Bascinet replica is hand crafted in polished steel and brass and has a removable pivoting visor like the originals. It features brass 'vervailles' for attaching a chainmail 'aventail' (not included) and an adjustable leather spider liner and buckled chin strap. 18 gauge steel construction - not recommended for contact reenactment.

Looks great, but only for displayReview by Peter

Cheap and cheerful. Looks great but not suitable for wearing as the visor doesn't stay up or down, the edges are too thin and sharp and it's not padded inside (Posted on 09/11/2018)
Lovely helmet, but not for wearingReview by Peter

My first helmet purchase. Looks great, well built, well finished. Iconic. Has a leather inner for creating a cradle for your head and a chin strap (which apparently is a modern addition). I really was taken aback by the visual impact of the helmet. Visibility is a little restricted, but then that can be expected when your face is covered in steel.

However, with the visor down it is impossible to look down, as the visor is hinged so that it rises away from the helmet. There is no clasp or buckle to keep the visor down.

So having lifted the visor, there is means to keep the visor up, and invariable it slams down the first time you look down.

I'd gladly have this lovely piece on my bookshelf, but not on my head. (Posted on 17/10/2018)
