Burgundian Kettle Hat, 15th C., 1.6mm Steel

This late medieval helm is a reproduction of a late 15th century Burgundian kettle hat or war hat, modelled after original artefacts (one of which is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York). Its particular appeal lies in its simple, yet handsome design and its fluted bowl that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Burgundian Kettle Hat, 15th C., 1.6mm Steel

Worn by foot soldiers, archers, crossbowmen, pikemen, and men-at-arms all over Europe in the high and late Middle Ages, this rather plain helmet in the shape of a brimmed hat owes its name to its resemblance to a cooking pot (originally called a kettle).

Although kettle hats existed in many variations, they all shared the same main feature – a wide brim that offered good protection, not only against downward sword blows, but also against hails of arrows or other projectiles shot or dropped from above. This highly protective design, which, in addition, did not impair the wearer’s sight, hearing or breathing, proved useful during sieges and mass infantry battles, and majorly contributed to the long-lasting popularity of this helmet type.

The reconstruction we offer here is crafted from 1.6mm (16 gauge) steel, and hence only suitable to a limited extent for combat re-enactment. The blackened interior is fitted with a riveted suspension liner made of leather and the adjustable, 3mm thick leather chin strap closes with an antiqued brass buckle.

Suitable for light combat re-enactment, LARP, stage or TV/film, this fine, fully wearable helmet will make your transformation into a proud medieval warrior just perfect. Of course, it will also make a great addition to any helmet collector’s treasure chamber.
