Great Bascinet Pamplona

This Great Bascinet originated around 1430. It was originally deposited in the Cathedral at Pamplona. Now it is displayed in The Museum of Fine Art Navarra in Spain. Great bascinets like this were the first helmets to be worn with complete suits of plate armour, and were used in battle up until the last decades of the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) between England and France.

This version of the famous Great Bascinet Pamplona endeavours to be one of the best done replicas as for its elaborated form. The long extended nose on the visor curves on lower neck protection. The visor is anchored to the hinges on the helmet bowl by means of two solid pegs. It can be tilted upward and worn in the up-tilted position. The front neck plate is partially movable. The lower edge of the visor sits inside the front neck plate. The plate can then hinge upwards without hitting the visor. The visor is perforated with many air holes in a “pasta strainer” pattern. The large neck protection sits on the shoulders, chest and back of the wearer´s neck. At the side view are front neck plate hinge lies almost vertically under the visor hinge.

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

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

How and what materials are your daggers made from?

The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
