The bascinet was a helmet without a visor that was worn underneath the great helmet at the beginning of the 14th century. Around 1450 the bascinet was often worn loose with a visor attached to it. The helmet has a pointy end to catch blows and because of its shape it was often called hounskull or pig faced helmet.
This type of bascinet is made after a French original. The sides cover nearly the whole neck and the visor can easily be opened with two removable hinge constructions. The back around the neck has brass attachment points for a coif. The helmet is made of 2 mm thick steel and has a leather inlay and chin straps.This helmet is available in the sizes M or L, with or without a helmet stand and with or without an arming cap. Size M is suitable for a head circumference up to 61 cm, size L up to 63 cm.
