Bascinet Helmet

The bascinet was a type of helmet of Italian origins used in medieval Europe (14th century). Differently from the cervelliera, its archetype, the bascinet was equipped with a camaglio attached to the tile and not to be worn under the helmet. Thanks to the massive diffusion, the artifact was enriched with additional parts for face protection: first nosepieces and then armored visors. At the beginning of the 15th century, it was strengthened by replacing the camaglio with a gorget made of metal plates.

Compared to the usual model of the basin helmet, the visor with two lateral pins was mounted on two hinges placed on each side of the helmet, with the spherical (hemispherical) visor which facilitated breathing.

The bascinet was the type of helmet most in use during the Hundred Years' War. It was supplanted in the fifteenth century by the sallet and the tub.

The basin appears in Italy at the turn of the 13th century. The word "bazineto" appears in a Paduan document dated 1281 to describe a type of helmet used by the city infantry. It was originally an evolution of the cervelliera, from which it is distinguished by its pointed tile, which was quickly used to replace the too cumbersome large helmet. At the basis of the evolution there was, perhaps, the influence on the work of the Italian armorers of oriental helmet models: Byzantine or Turkish.

A metal tile with a pointed top and facing backwards, descending onto the cheeks and nape of the wearer. By means of a row of small holes on the edges, an internal padding was fixed to the tile, in order to make the object not only more comfortable, but also more suitable for absorbing shocks.

For maximum comfort, the helmet is equipped with an internal lining (leather padding) and a chin strap.

This medieval helmet is ideal for combat, buhurt but also for medieval re-enactment parades.

Upon request it is possible to have the medieval tank in stainless steel, only in the display version (1mm thickness).
