At the end of the 15th century sallets achieved their transformation phase before the armet. This Late transitional sallet is based on an original sallet A72 from the Wallace Collection dated 1520, made by armourers in north Italy. This sallet was probably used with gorget without bevor. It belonged to the collection of the Count of Nieuwerkerke and was acquired by Sir Richard Wallace in 1871.
This Late transitional sallet boasts to had been painted by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc in his “Castles and Warfare in the Middle Ages”. This is a celebrity among transitional sallets!
The effective gauge of the steel plate may vary due to the handcrafted way of manufacturing.
The helmet is provided with a leather chin strap.
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.
