18 Gauge Steel

One of the more popular helmets of the 15th century, the Sallet could be found throughout continental Europe, but was most popular in Italy and especially in the German Principalities. The sallet afforded excellent protection and the wide vision slit with extended lower lip protected the face whilst allowing for better ventilation and airflow than earlier great helms with breathing holes. Sallets often had a hinged face visor that could be lifted when not necessary. Sallets worn by light infantry and archers often had no visor at all.

This North Italian style visor features the long curving lines favored by the Italians, as opposed to the rounded domes, elongated tailpiece and fluting of the German style. This one has been made with16 gauge high carbon steel with a brass hinge for the visor. It is unlined but comes with a padded arming cap that can be inserted. It has an integrated leather chin strap with brass buckle to keep the helm firmly affixed in the wild melee of combat.
