Peaked Bascinet with visor grill, 1380-1400

Our Peaked Bascinet with visor grill is inspired by the original that is deposited in the Musée de Valere, Sion, dated 1380-1400. Similar models of bascinet were found in archaeological excavations dated XIV century. But only few miniature paintings confirm the usage of such helmets by medieval warriors. The brim (peak) is probably a later addition. The face opening is protected by a visor grill (so called fish bone) that is connected to the helmet bowl by means of four pegs. The face guard (visor grill) is removable. The peak moderates the striking force of cuts directed against the head. The optional aventail protects the face additionally a covers the neck perfectly.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
