This is the final version of Sallet before the introduction of Armets. It has a fluted pivoted visor with air holes. It is locked onto a pin on the right side. The helmet bowl is at the front reinforced with a second wedge plate. The plate on the back is flanged and partially versatile.
Made after illustration of L. and K. Funcken (Historische Waffen and Rüstungen, page 35). Sallet, last form was probably worn only with simpler kinds of gorgets (without chin guards), as it visor plate is quite long.
This helmet can be made to measure after your measurements ‘1a’ to ‘1j’ in this measurement chart.
Please read our instructions, how to determine a helmet size correctly.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
