Catalog Description: The Bascinet is the most common form of helmet used in the middle ages. Originally developed to be worn under the great helm or barrel helm the bascinet eventually evolved to include a retractable visor. The original purpose was to protect the warrior during hand-to-hand combat but allowing him to discard his heavy hot suffocating great helm. This replica is from a later time period that the Houndskull as is shown by the smaller and flater visor. This would have been used in the later 13th century into the 15th century. This is the primary type of helmet used in the Hundred Years War.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
