This burgonet is based on 17th century originals that were made by the London armorers Rafe Boulter and Sylvester Keene. They co-operated in weapon production until 1648. The original is nowadays part of the collection of the Royal Armouries in Leeds. This burgonet is a replica of one of the most frequently used cavalry helmets from the British Civil War (1642-1649). Helmets like this were used all over Europe. On the British isles, the helmet is also called 'lobster pot'. This helmet is suitable for a head circumference up to 62 cm.

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.
