Historically Accurate

Great for Re-enactors

The Bascinet or 'Pig Face' Helmet is the most common form of helmet used in the middle ages. Originally developed to be worn under the great helmet or barrel helmet 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. Our version replicates an ealier version probably from the 12th century.
