Peaked Bascinet with visor grill, 1380-1400

Our Peaked Bascinet with visor grill is inspired by the original that is deposited in the Musée de Valere, Sion, dated 1380-1400. Similar models of bascinet were found in archaeological excavations dated XIV century. But only few miniature paintings confirm the usage of such helmets by medieval warriors. The brim (peak) is probably a later addition. The face opening is protected by a visor grill (so called fish bone) that is connected to the helmet bowl by means of four pegs. The face guard (visor grill) is removable. The peak moderates the striking force of cuts directed against the head. The optional aventail protects the face additionally a covers the neck perfectly.
