Description of the Product

Made of thicker 2,5 mm steel to withstand the rigours of ultimate heavy combat. Made for buhurt, historical medieval battle (HMB), heavy combat and other Battle of the Nations -style combat.

Bascinet was a very common helmet-type used from early 14th Century up until 1450. The very first bascinets were used during the last years of the 13th Century and were used under the great helm like cervelliere-helmets. At the beginning of 14th Century (1320 onwards) armourers started adding face plates/visors to bascinets for better protection and by 1350 visored bascinet had replaced great helms on the battlefields. Bascinets stayed in common use (with some modifications on the way) all the way up until 1450. Even though bascinet was a helmet for the wealthy knightly class and heavily armored men-at-arms lighter versions of bascinets were used by some lightly armored infantry also.

The name of this helmet comes from Wenzel Bible that is a illustrated Bible made between 1389 and 1400. The bible has many scenes of war and violence and these are decipted in the Wenzel Bible using the arms, armor and style of the day. Even though studying the illustrations of Wenzel Bible is a time travel to the end of 14th Century similar helmets can be seen in other books from other times as well.

Bascinets were typically fitted with a mail curtain –called aventail- to protect the neck and throat of the wearer.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
