This sallet is based on 16th century originals. The fact that this type of helmet was used for over a 100 years proves its popularity. Helmets like this were often mass produced, where many helmets had to be made in just a short time. The neck protection gave the wearer a perfect protection from projectiles. The visor provided a perfect field of view, in combination with an optimal face protection.

This item is handmade in a limited amount. Each item is unique. Finish and sizes can slightly vary.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
