16 Gauge Steel
6 lb 8 oz

This Houndskull Bascinet is of 16 gauge steel. The Houndskull is a design with many curved surfaces that serve to deflect the force of a blow. The elongated ‘’snout’’ of the Houndskull ensures that the edge of the helm is not too close to the nose and the curved surfaces aid in directing even the force of a direct strike to transmit down the sides of the visor and onto the wearer’s nose.

The visor can be tilted upwards, but its movement is limited and it has no pin to hold it in place. The visor can be secured down with an adjustable leather strap and buckle. Also, the visor can be removed completely by removing the side pins to create a simple Bascinet. A series of perforated pins give suitable anchor points for the possible addition of a chainmail aventail. The helm is blacked on the inside and is lined with a padded suspension liner which can be adjusted to fit the head with its leather cord. The helm is finished with an adjustable leather chin strap with a buckle of brass.

A iconic helm of the high medieval period; the Houndskull, like other bascinets, was in use from about the mid 14th century to the early 15th century and was worn by these warriors who were largely wearing armor of mixed mail and plate as this was a transitionary period in armor development.
