Do not forsake your armour when you head into battle. Wear the Late 15th Century Helmet to protect your head from an enemy blow. Made from 14 gauge mild steel, this helmet comes in two sizes. Based on an original helmet from Northern Italy, it features a transitional sallet design with the flared rear. Rivets attach the flared tail to the rest of the helmet. The flared design helps to protect the back of the neck. Next, the helmet has a ridge down the center. The crest continues onto a decorative plate on the forehead of the helmet. It forms a point at the top. The helmet features a hinged visor.
Made from 16 gauge mild steel, the visor sticks out farther forward than the rest of the helmet. This creates an eye slot for you to look out of. The visor features a bellows style front. It has V-shaped grooves with the central ridge down the front. These bellows have ventilation holes. The visor secures in place with a latch on the side. The Late 15th Century Helmet makes a great addition to both medieval and Renaissance-inspired reenactment ensembles.
Please note that steel thickness may vary slightly due to the handcrafted methods used in the manufacture of this item.
