BTW Chainmail aventail with leather strap

An aventail is a piece of chain mail, which in the Middle Ages was fastened to the helmet for additional neck and shoulder protection. Favoured helms were for example the nasal helmet, but most notably the late medieval bascinet or one of its versions, the houndskull or pig-face helm. This chainmail aventail from Ulfberth features an authentic jagged edge and a thick cowhide strap sewn to the top. The fixing holes are to be punched in the leather by the customer.
