Open Faced Basinet

Standard basinet includes inner textile liner. It is made of iron plate (not stainless). The earliest versions of the bascinet, at the beginning of the 14th century, had no visors, and were worn underneath larger "great helms." After the initial clash of lances, the great helm was often discarded during fierce hand-to-hand combat, as it impeded breathing and vision. Thus, having a smaller helmet underneath was a real advantage.

Over the course of the late 14th to early 15th centuries, the bascinet evolved from a shorter form with a shorter point (or no point at all) to its more pointed form—some so severe as to have a vertical back. In Germany a more bulbous version also appeared in the beginning of the 15th century. During the first half of the 15th century, more plates were added to protect the throat better, producing a form called the "great bascinet". Both the portion covering the skull and the hinged visor over the face became less angular and more rounded, until by the mid to late 15th century, the great bascinet had evolved into the armet.

This helmet can be made to measure after your measurements ‘1a’ to ‘1j’ in this measurement chart.
