The great bascinet was developed from the standard bascinet, a shorter, egg-shaped helmet, with the earlier mail protection for the throat and neck replaced with plates; the throat now being protected by an additional plate, while the back of the helmet's skull was extended to cover the neck. The face would have been protected by a detachable, rounded visor pierced with numerous holes for sight and ventilation.

Bascinets or great bascinets were the first helmets to be worn with complete suits of plate armour.


This Pointed visor or "Plow faced" Great Bascinet features:

  • A pointed visor with many breather holes
  • Visor can open and can be removed using the slide pins.
  • Spring loaded locking clip to hold the visor down.
  • Includes vervelles and leather strap for aventail.
  • Padded webbing is adjustable and has been authentically stitched to the helmet.
  • Chin strap.

This is a very well designed and constructed piece. Unlike many other 'off the shelf' helmets available this one was actually designed for combat use and is not just a thicker version of inferior collector helmets.
