This Barbute is made after the original from about 1470. The probable maker was the DeBovis family. The face of this one piece helmet is marked by the T-shaped opening to allow a good combination of vision and protection. The defining characteristic of the barbute is the fact that the shape of the helmet extends all the way down to cover both sides of the face. The extended sides protect the neck and jaw. Regardless of the type of opening - which could be T-shaped, Y-shaped or arch-shaped, this characteristic is practically always present. This made the wearing of a gorget optional. In place of a plate gorget the barbute would have often been worn with a stiffened mail collar, termed a "standard," which protected the throat and neck.
The standard version of our T-faced Barbute DeBovis is crafted in 16 gauge steel and includes a comfortable fabric liner and a chinstrap. As the helmets are produced in our own workshop, we can offer you also the 14-gauge version (2.0 mm). The helmet can com with an adjustable leather liner instead of the padded textile liner (standard version).
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.
